With the power of the MagTag’s ESP32-S2 WiFi enabled processor, we can stream in a continuously updating list of quotes from Adafruit’s quotes server. Or, go a bit more to the contemplative/NSFW side with the popular Reddit r/Showerthoughts display!
By using the built-in deep sleep mode, a battery-powered MagTag can run for days or weeks on a single charge, just waking up every hour to grab a new quote. You can get about 100 refreshes on a battery, so space em out however you like.

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.
