If jumping into the world of machine learning all seems too complicated and expensive, but you still want to get your feet wet, then the TensorFlow Lite for
Microcontrollers Kit from Adafruit might just be perfect for you. The kit contains the Adafruit PyBadge with ATSAMD51 ARM Cortex-M4F processor, a built-in display, multiple buttons for feedback, and an integrated speaker. The kit also
includes an electret microphone, LiPo battery, and all the necessary wires to hook everything up. They took all the worry out of what you need to get started with machine learning, and combined it into a simple and affordable kit.

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.
