Now Playing! This wireless Bluetooth LE device displays whatever song/artist/album is playing on your iOS device, such as iPhone or iPad. Bonus feature — use the Circuit Playground Bluefruit’s buttons and slide switch to play and pause a track, or skip ahead or backwards to a different track.
Using CircuitPython code and the Apple Media Service library, we can easily connect the CPB to an iOS device, and then automatically retrieve track info. Buttons are assigned to play/pause and track skip, but you can customize them to use many other media control commands!

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.
