Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project
(Note: Google+ login required.)
Thanks of Alexis Wiasmitinow for sharing his awesome (and seasonally appropriate) Turbogrill V2 project this week in our community!
Turbogrill V2, now with the fan sideways, so it gets no hot ashes falling from the top and the speed control is ergonomically optimized. (read more)
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
On the blog this week, we shared Robert’s flood warning system project that uses the FONA – sounds like really great work! You can read more about DAI here.
I thought you might be interested in something we did this week with the Adafruit FONA. I run something called the DAI Maker Lab, which is further described at the URL above. In short, we integrate maker tools and approaches into our work with developing countries.(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.
