Go behind the scenes at Arduino to find out the story behind the hottest microcontroller releases of the year – the new version of the Uno, the line of MKR boards, and their very first FPGA. Hardware development has never been easier.
We also learn the ancient craft of blowing glass, peer up to the cosmos with the Open Space Agency, make the ultimate ice cream and more.

Also in this issue, a review of CRICKIT! SeeSaw overview, good work Dean @adafruit on SeeSaw!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
