NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Circuit Playground Express Enclosure

NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Circuit Playground Express Enclosure


We’ve got nice cases for many of our beloved boards, but the Circuit Playground Express has been left out of couture enclosure game.

Enter Ada-friend Mike Doell to the rescue! This minimal but elegant acrylic case will turn your board into an electronic snowflake. The enclosure is designed to snap together securely with no tools required. You can still press all the buttons and slide the switch thanks to a clever plastic widget fitted inside. The case winds around all the touch pads so you can still touch them or attach alligator clips.

On the back, we have two slots that can be used to pass through ribbon or webbing up to 1″ /2.5mm wide There is also a slim 1/4″-20 nut that is embedded in the center back. This is compatible with any camera mounting accessory, so if you need a solid attachment, you can use any camera positioning tool or tripod.

Since it’s crystal clear, you can see all the NeoPixels shining in glorious color. The light sensor also works just fine and the case will not block IR messages going in or out. Even though there are no microphone or speaker holes, audio passes through the case via various small openings – we tested it and the difference is barely noticeable.

This enclosure is only compatible with the Circuit Playground Express!

This case will protect your Circuit Playground Express from every day usage, but it is not waterproof or weatherproof. This product comes as 2 molded plastic halves with the buttons in place. No boards, cables, or accessories are included.
