NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Mystery Box – NeoMatrix Mk I @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
New Learn Guide alert! It’s the NeoMatrix Mk I — the interface of infinite possibilities! Check out this latest Mystery Box project from John Park that uses an Arduino controlled, full-color RGB NeoSegment display, a phone matrix keypad, knobs, buttons, speakers and more!!
The NeoMatrix Mk I can be programmed to perform a wide array of functions, such as puzzle box, crypto key generator, music step sequencer, CNC controller, or even NeoPixel programmer. How you use it is up to you!
Plus, learn how to laser cut an enclosure for your project, and make custom, low-profile wiring interconnects.

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.
