Whether they’re rings, strips, panels, matrices, we love glowing up projects with LEDs. And here’s an interesting new board! Is it half of an electronic Oreo cookie? Nay! It’s a NeoPixel Triple-Ring Board with Thru-Hole LEDs.
This board is dotted with 44 adorable bubble-shaped lightly-diffused 5mm NeoPixel LEDs. Use just like any NeoPixel ring or strip, power with 5V and send it WS2812/NeoPixel signals. The signal pads on the bottom are labeled DI for data input, and DO for data output (to other rings).
The diffused LEDs have an interesting look compared to our other flat rings, and we like the multi-ring effect.
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.
