HackSpace Magazine Issue 25: Maker Christmas: the Circuit Playground Bluefruit @Adafruit @HackSpaceMag

https://hackspace.raspberrypi.org/issues/25

HackSpace Magazine Issue 25 recommends the Adafruit Circuit Playground Bluefruit among its programmable boards for gift giving.

The Circuit Playground Express is a fantastic board. We like it so much that we made it our subscriber gift for 12-month subscribers. The combination of a load of sensors, ten NeoPixels, and a form factor suitable for crocodile clips and wearables makes a great board for testing out ideas quickly and easily. It’s still a great board for getting started, but this month we’ve been playing with the Circuit Playground Bluefruit, and it brings everything we
liked on the Circuit Playground Express, but with the addition of an easy to use smartphone app, that lets you add remote control to your projects. It’s a fantastically easy way to link your phone to your projects.
