My latest Arduino project is a little bit more complicated than my last. This new project will check the main headline on Drudge Report and it will then display it on the LCD screen of the Arduino. After that, it checks to see if the headline has changed since the last time it checked. If it is, it plays a song on a speaker on the Arduino and sends an email (or text message) notifying me of the change.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

Ewww… drudge report.
@Brendan – code is on git, it can be any site…
Looks like an interesting project. I think the demo was good too, but it would have been better with a less controversial sample site. It’s a distraction from an otherwise thorough and excellent project post.
(Especially considering the crass headline at the time.)
I think the fault is with the reader if they can’t get too dristracted becaues this cool project happened to link to a site the readr doesn’t agree with. The creator made the project for himself, not you :).
