NEW GUIDE: No-Solder LED Disco Tie with Bluetooth #CircuitPython
Merge a timeless fashion standard with sound-reactive, full-color LED animation, and control it all wirelessly from your phone – the Disco Tie with Bluetooth
Inspired by John G, this update to the classic Ampli-Tie uses Circuit Playground Bluefruit and Neopixel LEDs to turn your tie into a portable, customizable light show – with no soldering required. This one’s guaranteed to get you noticed on the dance floor and the vast majority of formal events. Check out the full guide 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.
