Happy Labor Day! Post up what you’re making in the comments!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

  1. Mashing together a homemade 12vdc USB charger and an fm transmitter to use my iPhone as a music source in my car without a mountain of other gadgets cluttering things up (yeah, you can buy nice pretty ones, but I’ve got all the parts I need for the power supply and an old transmitter, and I like to tinker)

  2. a ‘Duino based pyro firing system, a maple chest, and a pair of pants. woot for too many projects at once! 🙂

  3. Up at seven making the almighty tomato sauce for this years Italian based dishes. You know spagetti and lazonia gnochi mmmm veal on a bun cabage rolls…. Need I go on?

  4. A twittering toy based on the Adafruit Ethernet shield and an XPort Direct module….it works great! More info soon. 🙂

  5. Using Art of Illusion and the MakerBot CupCake to “print” a t-track clip, ball-and-socket swivelling mount to attach a couple of surplus network cameras to the ceiling by the window at the end of the hall at work tomorrow, so those of us without windows can still get a glimpse of the world.

  6. Right now I’m making a generator to power my home from vacuum energy. By creating two vacuum regions with different zero-point energy levels and inducing a flow between them through a magnetic conduit, I can extract some of the energy.

    Just kidding. I’m making a ham radio transmitter from a Boarduino.

  7. Finishing up an ESR meter.

  8. fixing my fing sprinklers for the last time!!!!!

  9. Various things in the KA1KJZ Mad Science Laboratory and Technologic Workshop ™. Tossed together a quickie cylon/knight rider LED sequencer “just because”. And playing around with environmental logging and reporting with Arduino(s) vs Pachube.

  10. Made my first board in Eagle and using Batch PCB to fab them.

  11. Arudino controlled Asteroids clone (in processing).
    It’s my 2nd arduino project, and is a success!

  12. In a switch from electronics I actually built a TABLE. Of course, I designed it on a computer and “printed” it with a Shopbot CNC router, but still.
