AdaBox007 – SPY is the perfect gift for folks who are just getting started in the world of DIY electronics. It’s an excellent addition to our family of DIY projects, plus it’s a solderless pack. This is also a great way to test the waters of AdaBox before committing to a subscription.
Please note! This is NOT the subscription version of AdaBox! This is ONLY AdaBox007 that shipped out to AdaBox subscribers in Dec 2017. This version does not include free shipping. If you’d like to subscribe to AdaBox, please visit the AdaBox page!
With previous AdaBoxes you’ve built robots and radios, learned CircuitPython, and played retro games. Now you’re ready to learn about the dark arts of electronics – this AdaBox is Super Sneaky with a Secret + Spy + Security theme. Everything in this box will teach you stuff they don’t want you to know!
We wanted to bring you the full experience of being a super hacker spy, but without having to hang upside-down from a helicopter, or break into MegaCorp’s skyscraper headquarters at 2AM. You’ll use your brains and hands to solve puzzles, send secret messages, bypass locks, and listen in on the radio waves around you. Then you’ll build some electronic projects that will teach you about security while having fun. You’ll learn how real hackers and security experts work, and at the same time how to protect yourself from spying eyes.
If you’re an international customer (outside of the UK, France, and Germany), this is currently the only way to get an AdaBox (for now – we’re working on it!) and if you’re a subscriber who missed out on boxes one and two, a great way to spend your time as you anxiously await AdaBox008.

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.
