In the rush to get out in the morning, do you have five minutes to check the weather alert for the day? Wouldn’t you prefer to spend that five minutes with a warm cup of coffee, reading news that matter to you? Or get those extra five minutes getting some much needed sleep? Let your umbrella stand do more than just stand there. Equip it to check the weather for you, then you can know as you walk out the door whether you need that umbrella or not. A blue light means blue sky (well no rain at least, it may be cloudy), and a blinking red means Rain Alert! Take that umbrella with you.

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.
