You’ve been burning the midnight oil cobbling your latest maker project. Wait, what time is it? Whether you’re a night owl (like Minerva!) or an early bird getting the worm, don’t forget to stay hydrated! And what better way to keep your workspace free of condensation stains than with these durable yet completely charming PCB Coasters!
These coasters feature Adabot and friends from Circuit Playground on an extra-sturdy 2.4mm thick FR4 PCB bursting with black silk, copper cladding, and golden highlights. To let the natural copper beauty come through, and maintain durability, we specified a clear mask and finished with electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG), so they look incredible and last for years. Also packaged are four clear bumpers for a lil’ extra stability, stick them on the bottom for a good grip.

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.
