From the mail bag!

I literally owe my life to AdaFruit. As a Vet and for over 30 years, a
variety of PTSD has not been good to me. The past 5 years in retirement,
mindless challenges, and no way to apply positive thinking seemed to be a
big drag downward. Then, I found AdaFruit. I bought some of your breakout
components and Trinkets and other things to stimulate imagination and
creativity. For the past 2-3 weeks, I have been glued to your website, my
breadboard, and sketches. I go to sleep at night thinking about your
products and I wake up enthusiastic and positive about what’s in store for
the day of DIY projects. At age 67 now, time is compressed but everyday is a
good Adafruit day. Thank you so much. I wish I’d met you all sooner. Your
work is nothing short of miraculous.

All the best, Bill


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.
