Who hasn’t wanted their own animated GIFs to play in a private desk museum? The future is now! Build this desktop Raspberry Pi picture frame which an display animated GIFs on a color 2.8″ TFT, in Chromium kiosk mode
Start with a Pi Model B or Pi Model B+ and an Adafruit 2.8″ PiTFT, with some liberal use of a dremel (or diagonal cutters) and a touch of overclocking, you too can achieve your dreams of collecting GIFs and entertaining yourself to no end. Find inspiration. Use Sugru.
There is a very minimal amount of code involved with this project. It would be difficult to actually do less adjustment to a Raspberry Pi, and not see as dramatic of results.
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.
