Did you know that it has been more than 20 years since Velleman first introduced its unique electronic projects to the hobbyist community? Hobbyists which we now call makers. So we figured that after 20 years, an update of our one-of-a-kind brand is in order! That is why, from now on Velleman for Makers will be called Whadda, the new Premium Maker Brand by Velleman.
Whadda will bring exciting electronics to the maker community! We even designed a little mascot named Whaddy.
Whaddy will help out novice Makers to find their way in the world of electronics. He’ll spread around tips and tricks, and teach you a thing or two about our four main skills.
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.
