Hackers & Makers (video).

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know –

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, 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.

Join 24,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. Interesting video and all, and as a maker you can’t complain about the attention, but I don’t see what Intel is going to be able to do in this space. It isn’t like even the most dedicated makers are going to be able to use Core i7 breakout boards or something, and their last SoC press release just had it’s 3rd birthday this week:

    I mean think about it, that’s a press release that is fully potty trained and can brush its own teeth.

  2. Whoa! 3 mentions to the Intel crowd! Hats off to you my fair lady! And I agree! 🙂

  3. @Bruce:
    In the maker world of Arduino indeed an Intel Core i7 or similar quad core CPU will be tremendous overkill. But note that in the world of commercial embedded systems there are thousands of folks deploying stuff like that.

    For us makers, @Intel_Stewart has been working hard to create something makers could put to use. His latest incarnation is still high performance vs an Arduino microcontroller, but I’m certain some maker will figure out how/where to make an amazing application for this board:

    And you can follow the antics on Twitter at the @DevBoard account.

    For example, there’s an International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC, e.g. quadcopter) brewing now. Take a look:

  4. @intel_jim, very cool, thank you doing that talk and thanks for commenting here. it’s great to hear and see more intel in the maker world.

  5. @Bruce — In my opinion, whether or not makers could use Intel products in their projects is kind of beside the point.

    Having Intel engineers and scientists as part of our maker community would be nothing but good news and would enlarge our collective braintrust.

    I have several friends at Intel who are starting to get into making, and the idea really is catching on there.
