Community Corner – January 19, 2016: The Featured Projects from last Week
Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project
(Note: Google+ login required.)
This week in our Community, Yuan LIU shared his sharp looking Tardis print!
A new multi-hour build from Ares 3D Printer. This time, it took over 8 hours even though the time lapse video is shorter. One corner of the base did not stick well enough. That left a very severe curved corner. Otherwise the build is pretty good. (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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
