Many thanks to James Wolf for sharing another great project on our Community page! Check out his arduino decision maker project here!

Made a fun little project for my wife with the tiny Arduino Beetle and 3D printed a plastic enclosure. You can a lot of fun with an Arduino and a few flashing LED’s (read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

Slickstreamer Neopixel VU earrings wearable arduino adafruit

Thanks to Marcus Olsson for sending in this awesome Neopixel VU earrings project! Check out more on his blog here.

This hack was inspired by Adafruit Gemma Hoop Earrings and the first version of the earrings used an accelerometer instead of a microphone to react on the environment. Having trouble to create any good patterns with the accelerometer and found the small INMP401 mic, same as the bracelet use, it was a easy decision to switch to use a mic instead.

I build the earrings with Vesta Schelin. (read more)

Community Corner! Sharing and celebrating the creative community: Show and tell, Ask an Engineer, mailbag, Twitter, Google+, Facebook, “Makers, hackers, artists & engineers. Sharing, learning and celebrating making!


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.
