The Great Search: A Tool-Tastic Holiday! #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @adafruit @DigiKey
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to everyone! We’re being cozy and warm here, and watching all the cool kids unwrap their presents on social media. We saw this nice Twitter thread from Thea on favorite hand tools and a post by Timon showed these polypropylene swabs that are not going to give you cotton bits everywhere. Great for cleaning flux off of PCBs.
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.
