You have received your new Adafruit Crickit with Circuit Playground Express. You’d like to quickly grab a servo and speaker and have it do something cool (often with your young one).
What is the equivalent of “Hello World” for robotics? Here it is! This new guide has sample programs in both Microsoft MakeCode and CircuitPython to have you waving Adabot’s arm, lighting up and making sounds in minutes instead of hours or 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, 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.
