Small Parts Storage Cabinet Project with littleBits
Steve Ramsey of the Woodworking for Mere Mortals YouTube channel posted a great project to build a small parts storage cabinet. This is the perfect thing to store electronics components, and because you build it yourself you can customize it to exactly your needs. There’s even a demonstration of littleBits in the video!
Here’s a fun shop project to help you organize small parts. At first glance, you may dread making all those little drawers. No worries: I’ve got an easy method that will let you chop them all up at once and ensure they are all exactly the same size. Free plans and more info: http://bit.ly/1qiOJUY
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
