Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project
(Note: Google+ login required.)
Bruce Lowther shared an in-progress video of the MIDI drum set project he is working on this week in our Community! Looks (and sounds) great so far.
Back in the electronics world again… Working on a MIDI drum set for my daughter. Using #ATMEL #ATMEGA328 and a whole stack of piezo sensors I got ebay.
Serial midi commands are begin sent to ‘Hairless MIDI’ application.
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on the blog, we shared @tamberg’s awesome IoT Gauge project!
This Instructable by @tamberg (https://twitter.com/tamberg)
shows how to build a Web-enabled, Arduino-based IoT Gauge with a REST API, and connect it to the IFTTT.com mash-up platform, via the Yaler.net relay service. With the Maker Channel, IFTTT finally supports custom Webhooks, to integrate DIY IoT projects!(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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
