Many Adafruit Feather boards are capable of simulating USB HID devices, like keyboards and mice. So why not have a shield that makes it easy to add a small macro keyboard to your computer? Or, you know, a set or really nice buttons with color LEDs to your project.
A²B Feather Wing
By David Knochenhauer:
For my daily work at a big car manufacturer in germany there was the need to have a simple solution testing the A2B Audio Bus. The Feather ecosystem is a perfect match since we can combine several architectures with various programming styles.
A2B nodes can be either master or slave and they can be bus powered (slave nodes only) or local powered.
The first prototype will be a local powered node, which can be either master or slave. Next will be a phantom powered slave node, so you can provide power over the A2B bus.

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.
