Many people refer to the Friday after Thanksgiving as ‘Black Friday’. It’s a day of rampant nonsense where people spend hours standing in line for cheap TV’s. Around here, we call it ‘Hack Friday’ — and we use it to celebrate people making things. If you’re lucky enough to have some time off on Friday, consider doing what we do — make something cool!
The project can be as simple or complex as you’d like. It can even be just a stage of a larger project. The idea is to spend some time actively creating, instead of passively consuming.
All day on Friday I’ll be blogging Hack Friday projects from around the web. If you want your project featured, post it on Twitter or G+ with the tag #hackfriday.
Check out our previous posts if you need some ideas, and share your projects with the world this year!
See you on Friday!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
