There will be a live unboxing with John Park on Wednesday, July 29th at 8 PM ET during ASK AN ENGINEER! Tune in here, or at the Adafruit YouTube channel to join the fun!


Hey - do you feel like you don't have a clue? Do you wanna get a clue? In this ADABOX we will give you a clue... the Adafruit CLUE!
The CLUE is a sensor-packed development board with a small colorful screen and a lot of sensors. To make it compatible with existing projects, we made it the same shape and size as the BBC micro:bit and with the same edge-connector on the bottom with five big pads so it will fit into your existing robot kit or 'bit add-on.
Each CLUE comes with a Nordic nRF52840 Bluetooth microcontroller, two buttons, 1.3" 240x240 color TFT, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure, triple-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer, proximity/light/color/gesture sensor, microphone, and a buzzer. Everything you need to learn how to interact and analyze the world around you. 
Have you been eagerly awaiting your ADABOX for a while? It has arrived! Thank you to everyone around the world who has been patient as this box made its way to you. There's no better time to get an ADABOX, with lots of fun electronic projects you can build at home by yourself or with family. Thank you from the entire Adafruit team here in NYC!

A huge thank you to Digi-Key for going above-and-beyond to help support Adafruit over the last few months. Digi-Key's support made this box possible, and we are so excited to see what you will build!


  • Adafruit CLUE, the star of the show! With a color display, tons of sensors, :bit compatibility, and Arduino or CircuitPython support for a ton of awesome projects.
  • Adafruit Bonsai Buckaroo, a plant care helper for CLUE. Bolt it on with 5 screws to get a buzzer/beeper, 3V DC motor driver, and alligator clips for connecting a DIY soil sensor
