Who doesn’t love LEGO? It’s hard to find someone who wasn’t obsessed with LEGO at some point in their life. Young or old, it’s a universally fun product. And it’s great to see the Raspberry Pi Build HAT allows you to integrate your Raspberry Pi and LEGO Technic motors and devices. And since all the components are on the bottom of the board, you can easily add a small breadboard or LEGO board on top of it.
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.
