Nicholas Harris posted this wonderful gif of his recent project – a 3D printer that’s being controlled by a Raspberry Pi!
I used a Raspberry Pi and a camera mount ( #OctoPi ) onto my 3D printer. Then, using the software, I can make a timelapse of a print. This is the end result, a four hour print packed into 6 seconds. (read more)
This color changing wearable will always be in harmony with the outfit it is pinned to. This brooch reads the color of a garment and turns either the complementary color or displays the missing two colors in the triadic color scheme. This project uses the Adafruit color sensor, Neopixels and an Arduino Mini 05.(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.
