The Kailh Switch Sockets are for the true DIY keyboard enthusiast. With this little component and the proper footprint on your custom PCB, you can easily add a
no-solder socket for your MX switches. Perfect for your next build where you’d like the option of building multiple boards with different types of switches. Just
keep in mind that you will still need some kind of mechanical support for snapped-in switches. A little hot glue or epoxy works well. A pack of 20 for just under $5!
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.
