Howdy keyboard cowboys, are you surfing the information superhighway with a Pi 400? Want a cool heads-up display, or maybe you need to wire up some NeoPixel wetware…?
Well, we just fenced 12 megabytes of ram and some angled socket header from the underground hacker club next to the chatsubo, and it’s a major upgrade to our extender board – now you can jack in any Pi bonnet into the back of your Pi 400’s skull at a cool angle, perfect for augmenting your deck! We also give you two STEMMA (JST 3-PH) connectors on GPIO #18 and #13, and twin STEMMA QT I2C port plugs, for additional upgrades (cables sold separately)
Comes completely pre-assembled and tested so you don’t need to do anything but plug it in. Works best with the Pi 400 computer.
The demo images show it with one of our 128×32 OLED bonnets plugged in. Any bonnet/mini-HAT/pHAT etc should work just fine as every pin is duplicated from input to output.

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.
