NEW GUIDE: Track Your Treats: Halloween Candy GPS Tracker

Track Your Treats: Halloween Candy GPS Tracker is a new guide in the learning system, just in time for Halloween:

So you’ve got an awesome Halloween costume planned, but do you know the best places to go trick or treating this year?  Some houses have great candy while others might stick you with a set of wax teeth or a granola bar–yuck!  Wouldn’t it be nice to keep a record of the best houses for trick or treating?  With this Track Your Treats GPS Candy Tracker project you can build a candy container that logs exactly where you found the best Halloween candy.  Using the power of theglobal positioning system you can optimize your trick or treat route for maximum candy acquisition!

This project uses an Arduino and either a GPS shield or FONA 808 shield to log your trick or treat route.  By pressing a button you can note a location as having good candy and view those good candy locations later on a map–great for planning next year’s trick or treating route.  With the GPS shield your path will be logged to a microSD card and viewed on Google Maps, and with the FONA 808 shield your path will be logged to Adafruit IO through the cellular network where a dashboard will display the trick or treating route live as it happens.

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.
