Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide 2015: 3D Printed Projects

Gift Guide

This year, you can make a batch of fresh DIY projects just in time for the holiday season. Here’s 6 projects you can make with the help of a 3D printer and some electronics and tutorials from Adafruit.

D20-on-tree

Talking D20

The talking d20 is fun and good for a laugh…though with electronics inside it won’t be 100% perfectly random or balanced…so it’s not suitable for all gaming situations and doesn’t replace your trusty dice bag. Think of it as a geek version of those “executive decision maker” toys.

The code and sounds are completely customizable. For example, you could load each of the 20 faces with the names of local lunch spots and use it to pick the day’s destination.

2-2-mini-pi

2.2″ Raspberry Pi

OMG, isn’t that just the cutest PiTFT display? The Adafruit 2.2″ PiTFT HAT is a perfect mini display for all sorts of Raspberry Pi projects.

AppleWatch-chargito-on-tree

Portable Apple Watch Charger

Super handy add-on for any smart watch that is likely to be under the tree this year! The small form factory even allows to to charge multiple devices at the same time through the UBS port on the side.

gamepad-on-tree

Bluetooth Gamepad

slide-on-tree
