The Pixelquest comes made out of cardboard, like all of Nintendo’s Labo accessories, but rather than transforming your handheld gaming device into an instrument, a mecha, or a moving toy, the PixelQuest takes you back in time to an era where gaming devices were large boxy cabinets with eye-level screens and controls that could withstand the abuse of an angry young teenage boy. The PixelQuest docks the Switch Screen, and the two handheld consoles (coming even with a joystick attachment like the old times), allowing you and your mate to play mano-a-mano or against the computer, just like the good old days. It also comes with a cheeky little graphic where the coin slot would be, and given its cardboard construction, can be colored/painted to look like an arcade cabinet from the golden days!
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.
