WIRED Raspberry Pi Project Roundup #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Check out this great eight project hit list for interesting Raspberry Pi projects this season from WIRED. They featured a bunch of stuff we have featured before — and thanks for the shout out for our Painting With Light tutorial!
Raspberry Pi, the new and novel credit-card-sized computer, has inspired the minds and workshops of an entire hacking community, who not only develop software projects for it, but are creating external interfaces with clever abandon. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to share with you here.
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.
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.
