“Making computers, coding and education available to everyone is the mission of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We’re at Maker Faire to help people take their first steps, showing off the best projects and learning resources.”
“James Adams, Director of Hardware Engineering at Raspberry Pi, in conversation with Make: magazine’s Matt Richardson. Hear about development, applications and implications of the credit-card sized computer.”
Joseph Anand: “Raspberry Pi-controlled Smart Refrigerator helps hack your health with smart lighting to simulate circadian rhythms in fresh produce, and emailing or texting you when vegetables are at their peak nutrition for you to consume.”
Avishay Orpaz: “ASTROGUN is an Asteroid shooting game. The player stands and has to shoot Asteroids that are coming towards him from any direction, before they hit him. A RADAR-like view helps the player locate the asteroids.”
Apon Palanuwech: “Data Rush is an interactive kinetic sculpture that reflects the past, the present, and the future of our data over the internet. Specifically, it alludes to how Silicon Valley now monopolizes and leverages user information.”
Rohan Jinturkar: “Have deer ever been a pesky problem in your yard, eating up your painstakingly-grown plants? If so, this project will assist you by detecting the intruder and receiving an alert on your computer.”
Fiveninjas: “Slice is an open source media player with a Raspberry Pi compute module at it’s heart. It will play back just about any video format, display photos, play music and even act as an Airplay receiver.”
Exhibit: The Raspberry Heights Workshop
Ron Callahan: “The Raspberry Heights Workshop is a project based class for young makers aged 6-10 where students learn computer basics, UNIX commands, Scratch programming and physical computing (interfacing) on the Raspberry Pi.”
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
