overwhelming. So many boards, so many parts. I subscribed to Adabox (019
is my first) in the hopes that I can slowly learn more about electronics. I
see my subscription as an “OK, you’ve learned about that, now let’s tach
things up a little and learn about *this*” opportunity. After just a couple
of hours tinkering with the Macropad, I successfully created a keypad for
Inkscape and a keypad to launch frequently used commands with many
keystrokes at the terminal prompt. So now I know about high-end rotary,
keys and keycaps, even programming an OLED. My primary objective has been
met. Thank you
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.
