Here at the Adafruit factory, we’re used to working within the confines of electrical resistance, and we never tire of a good “ΩMG!” or “Ω sweet Ω” play on words. Sometimes after a productive day of prototyping, testing, prepping, and shipping, we find ourselves in need of a healthy mental check-in and reset. Where are we going with this? Just wait!
This time it’s not about ohms, but the chanting of Om. This sacred spiritual syllable is chanted in Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, Sikhism, as well as in rites of passages, weddings, and, of course, yoga studios.
We dig this Meditation Chanting Prayer Speaker Box for its perfect hand-held size and ease of use. Insert two AA batteries (not included, but we sell them in the store), plug in your headphones/earbuds (or just use the speaker by itself), rotate the volume wheel, and you’re well on your way to a dedicated moment of a detached ego, increased concentration, and positive vibrations.

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
