Learn electronics with the Circuit Playground, a great way to practice programming on real hardware. It has built in sensors and LEDs and no soldering or sewing is required.

Similar to the Flora wearable microcontroller, the circuit playground features an ATmega32u4 processor and has alligator clip pads around the edge of the board for easy connecting. It can be powered via USB, AAA or lithium polymer batteries.

Circuit Playground has built-in USB support. You just need to plug it into a computer via a micro USB cable and it will be recognised. It also has USB HID support so can act like a mouse or keyboard to attach directly to computers.

  • ATmega32u4 Processor, running at 3.3V and 8MHz
  • MicroUSB port for programming and debugging with Arduino IDE
  • USB port can act like a serial port, keyboard, mouse, joystick or MIDI

Please Note:

  • This is the Developer Edition of Circuit Playground. This version is designed for people who have a little experience with Arduino already, and who want to help build & document projects.

  • 1 x Motion sensor (LIS3DH triple-axis accelerometer with tap detection, free-fall detection)
  • 1 x Temperature sensor (thermistor)
  • 1 x Light sensor (phototransistor)
  • 1 x Sound sensor (MEMS microphone)
  • 1 x Mini speaker (magnetic buzzer)
