This cable is a little unusual, rather than having a USB A plug on one end, it has two Micro B USB connections! What is this for? It’s for when you have a “USB On-The-Go (OTG)” device, and you want to plug in another USB device. For example, a Pi Zero or Pi Zero W has a OTG port, as does the Arduino Zero, and anything with an ATSAMD21 that is in USB host mode. Also great for when you want to attach to a tablet or phone with an OTG port.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
