Haters gonna hate…

E7L49
We love this…


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. The original comment I was trying to post is now irrelevant.

    1st try: Apparently there’s a little resistor game I have to monkey with to post a comment.

    2nd try: Apparently I am incapable of matching colors due to a bit of color blindness. ;/

    3rd try: I know I got it right this time! “You are posting comments too fast… Slow down.”

  2. YESSSSSS

  3. What in the world is going on here? I’d love to know ^_^

    Also, Patrick – the resistor’s value is displayed in text underneath the picture if you can’t make out the colors.

  4. “What in the world is going on here?”

    This is what massive amounts of WIN looks like.

  5. we should change it
    and get t-shirts that say

    makers gonna make

  6. @zuul: have you been snooping my hard drive?

  7. Only leaving a comment to prove I am human.

  8. @Brian: the text under the resistor is showing what the sliders are set to, not the resistor’s value unless you’ve set the sliders to the correct positions.

    I’m colorblind too and I do find the orange and the green hard to distinguish just by sight.
    Real resistors tend to give me problem with browns & reds though. Maybe I need to get my monitor calibrated, although it’s kinda pointless due to my colorblindness.. 🙁

  9. I’m not colourblind but I can definitely see the issue. For similar reasons I always ask what blind people are supposed to do with a touch interface to pay for products… seriously

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
