Andrea S. over at hackster.io posted this great project on how to detect new email messages in your inbox using a Raspberry Pi and Spark.
The aim of this project is automatically checking emails and showing the presence of new messages with different LED colors and blink patterns. The final product is a USB powered, WiFi connected, 3d printed small box with a few colored LEDs. You can place it anywhere there is a WiFi signal, and check your mailbox with a glance!

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.
