I’ll eventually design and 3d print a case for it. Battery lasts about 4 hours doing light work (SSH sessions, file transfers/edits, etc.). Haven’t tried running make on anything yet, to see how long it’ll stay alive for while doing stuff. Not sure if I’ll actually use the joystick and buttons, but I’m looking into make a small GUI to display stuff like available WiFi’s, battery percentage, and USB port identification (for devices) & directories (for data transfer).
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.
