We love wearable technology. Embedded into our apparel, it makes us feel like superheroes, either with dazzling lights, data-gathering sensors, or whimsical motorized elements.
Now is as good a time as ever to jump into this world, and we can help you do that with our upcoming Wearables Live Workshop, hosted by expert tech maker and fashion designer Kitty Yeung, free for Make: Members of all levels (yes, even the free tier — sign up here!)
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.
