Have you been wanting to get into DIY electronics? This guide is a great place to start. Create a crafty sparkly t-shirt using Circuit Playground and MakeCode. No soldering or sewing required! And you can customize the sparkle effects and motion sensing easily using the drag-and-drop MakeCode editor.
We’ve included a free mermaid vinyl cut project to go along with your sparkles. The Circuit Playground Express hidden in your pocket will light up and twinkle whenever you move or dance or jump and play.
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.
