My latest project using your amazing shield. I’d vote the wave shield “Best Arduino Shield” if there were such a contest.
I just hope every body’s heard. The Bird is the Word! This is a simple device to play Surfin Bird really loudly when someone trips off the motion sensor. If you don’t already own an Adafruit Wave Shield, I’d highly suggest purchasing one. It’s become my favorite shield by far. I love the idea of a dead quiet space with no obvious electrical devices and then “Bamm, right in the kisser” with some annoying music. This can be placed anywhere, but my preferred location is the bathroom. It’s echos real loud and there’s nothing more annoying than letting everyone know that you’ve just entered the bathroom. Try pooping to surfin bird, I dare ya!

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.
