Bedazzle your board with these No-Foil Flat Back SS16 Rainbow Crystals. They’re a lot like the crystals you see decorating clothes, bags and phones. But unlike most crystals you can buy these have no reflective foil on the back, which means they let light shine through and sparkle. This makes them not-so-great for decorating bland or boring things, but really great for gluing onto LEDs and NeoPixels!
Jazz up even more shimmer and sparkle to the Circuit Playground Express, or maybe you have an e-textiles wearables project that needs a little extra flair? Use a small dab of glue to attach right over the opening of a NeoPixel, for an extra bling. Note that the foil is what usually adds a lot of shimmer, and since its gone you won’t get that extra glam.
Comes in a pack of 100, so it’s OK if you drop some on the floor.
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.
