Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
We featured Adafruit customer Lucky Resistor’s impressive Deluxe Data Logger tutorial this week on the blog!
I started the data logger project, because I tried to figure out if I can store my documents down in the root cellar. The humidity in this cellar varies from 75% up to 90% which is way to high for paper documents. So I plan to store the documents in a sealed box.

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.
