What are you going to do with this board? Where to even begin. Pick two of its features and you’ve got an idea for a project. Screen plus tilt sense from the accelerometer to steer a game, and use the touch sensitive “teeth” as the buttons. Or use the built in NeoPixel plug and the accelerometer as a tap sensor in your next cosplay to make a light-up prop that responds to its own motion. Make the screen respond to the light sensor for a night-light video display. And so on and on and on. The number of projects you could do with this board before even wiring any extra parts on is what really caught my eye.
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.
