This simple Translucent Snap-on Case is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your bookbag or toolbox. It has slim cut-outs for your cable, speaker, and battery. It’s translucent plastic so you can still easily see the micro:bit PCB markings and LEDs shining through. The bottom section is open so you can plug it into a micro:bit accessory.
This simple Smoke Snap-on Case is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your bookbag or toolbox. It has slim cut-outs for your cable, speaker, battery. It’s darkened plastic but you can still easily see the LEDs shining through. The bottom section is open so you can plug it into a micro:bit accessory.
This 0.1mm pitch 2×2 Female Header is the perfect boost to use with boards that use the 4-pin ‘PoE’ header on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 4, like the Raspberry Pi PoE HAT! It’s a great pairing to the 2×20 socket riser header to get a full lift.
Use the force and Adafruit Feather to build a battle-grade lightsaber! If you can’t make the hyperspeed jump to Ilum for your Jedi rite of passage, the Adafruit Prop-Maker Starter Kit is perfect for making your very own 3D-printed NeoPixel Lightsaber. It contains practically everything but the khyber crystal!
Cyber-warriors, listen up here! We’ve got with some zero-day unreleased hardware we just dumpster-dived. Now you can crack kodes, and write skripts with style, thanks to the CYBERDECK HAT for Raspberry Pi 400 from Adafruit zaibatsu.
That new Raspberry Pi 400 computer you just got has a row of 2×20 pin headers on the right side – those are the GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins, and for those of us who like to hack electronics, they are where the real fun lies. By programming the Pi, you can twiddle those pins high or low, send and receive I2C and SPI data, and access the 3V and 5V power rails.
The LTR390 is one of the few low-cost UV sensors available, and it’s a pretty nice one! With both ambient light and UVA sensing with a peak spectral response between 300 and 350nm. You can use it for measuring how much sun you can get before needing to covering up.

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.
