The “Time Post”. Just finished up this analog meter clock. The time can be set by touching the bolts on the front by capacitive touch. The nail in the top of the post turns on the light and cycles through several levels of brightness. There is a video link in the comments that shows the basic operation of the controls. (read more)

Thanks so much to Eduardo for sending in his project to our blogtip line! Check out more here.
One of the most difficult things to play MK are the various movements and buttons that must be pressed sequentially to release a simple combo.

A macro-key button ! A magic button ! Just press it once, and a super sequence of combos is released against your opponent. (read more)
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.
