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)
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
