David Reyes, aka Tuxbrain, one of the Arduino distributors in Spain, has just brought to life one of the coolest hacks I have seen for some time. He managed to reflash Arduino Uno from a Ben NanoNote. He has implemented a text-based IDE that can reflash the boards directly from the NanoNote without using external power. If you want to have a device to reprogram your ATmega processors without having to bring your computer around, this can be a great solution. Just remember, this is an advanced hack, you should be familiar to the use of CLI (Command Line Interface), but David has promised taking a look at Qt-creator and put together a small text editor with uploading capabilities. Stay tuned at Tuxbrain’s development website!
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.
