The Adafruit CC3000 WiFi Shield is one of the most popular ways out there for makers to connect an Arduino board to the Internet, and the number of requests that we’ve gotten in the past several months asking us to introduce support for it certainly backs that up. Well, request no more! We’re very excited to now have the Adafruit CC3000 on the list of connectivity shields that we support, which also includes the Arduino WiFi, Ethernet, and GSM shields. Now, you can tackle more projects like building weather stations and connected security cameras more easily with Temboo’s IoT Mode. Break out your Arduino board and Adafruit shield, give it a try, and email [email protected] to let us know what you create!
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.
