“Best of Hands at Adafruit” Photo & Video Series Day 9 #hands #photography #wfh #bestofadafruit


Throughout this week, the Adafruit photo team will be posting a “Best of Hands at Adafruit” photo each day! Check in as we take you back to all of our favorite photos and videos.

For our day 09 post, we’re featuring the Flexible Protoboard, one of the most unique and hard-to-source prototyping materials we’ve come across.

We’re not bending the truth! This protoboard is only 0.4mm thick, so it’s extremely bendable and you can cut it easily with scissors – just don’t use your nice fabric scissors since the fiberglass will dull them. It has a bend radius of about 2 or 3″. You can also crease it, but that might break a trace if you crease a trace, and of course, it may crack and break along the crease.

And, of course, there are 0.1″ spaced prototyping holes with solder pads. They aren’t fully plated through, the holes are only plated on one side. But, you can solder any thru-hole components to the pads. Sensors? LEDs? Jumper wires? We have no assumptions what people are going to use it for, but we know it is going to be awesome.


8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
