basic components recently got their visuals updated with icons and labels
users can now customize those labels and icons to better fit their own usage
Font Awesome 6 and Emoji Support! (😎)
creators of new components can now specify how their components appear
I2C sensors now display with their SI Units, as appropriate
Stay tuned as the list of supported components expands, as well as the ways to visualize and customize them. We’re committed to letting our users extend the functionality of IO… using Open Source, of course!
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.
