The Circuit Playground is full of built-in features that can be used in a wide variety of projects.  It includes 8 non-power pads to be used as capacitive touch pads or for GPIO, 10 ‘NeoPixels, tactile pushbuttons, a slide switch, ambient light sensor, NTC thermistor temperature sensor, MEMS microphone to detect audio levels, and the LIS3DH 3-axis XYZ accelerometer detecting tilt, gravity, motion, as well as 'tap' and 'double tap' strikes on the board.


The Circuit Playground features an ATmega32u4 processor. The board is round and has alligator-clip pads so no soldering required. Power it up from a USB, a AAA battery pack, or with a Lipoly battery (for advanced users). Just program your code into the board then take it and go!


Circuit Playground has built-in USB support which means you plug it in to program it and it just shows up.  All you really need is a Micro-B data/sync USB cable - not included!  With the new 1.6.4+ Arduino IDE, it takes only a few seconds to add support. The Circuit Playground has USB HID support, so it can act like a mouse or keyboard and attach directly to computers.
