Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on our blog, Jessica posted about Adafruit Customer Brian’s awesome Mickey/Minnie Mouse Ear project!
I made these ears for my recent trip to Disneyland with my girlfriend. My pair glows blue while her pair glows pink and also have the Minnie Mouse polka dot bow.
This will guide you through the basics of constructing these ears for yourself. Keep in mind this is just how I did it and you are always free to do it better. The batteries lasted for about 8 hours of continual use when using brand new AAA batteries, and about 4 hours using rechargeable AAA batteries.(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.
