Show up to the holiday party with a shiny new combadge to let them know you’re from the future. This project features a circuit playground, which is capable of playing sounds, LED animation and loads of nifty sensors.
Wear a versatile microcontroller on your wrist to demonstrate your knowledge and love for technology. Use Ninjaflex TPU filament to make a strong and flexible wrist band that you can customize or remix for other projects.
Make a classic iconic toy into a modern joy of tech. This project is lots of fun to build and requires very minimal assembly. Print the parts in your favorite color and add your own mark to the covers.

The gift of knowledge for those who enjoy IOT and NeoPixels. This project uses a 24x NeoPixel ring to display weather through animated LED sequences. It’s a great little project, perfect for office environments with no windows!
Perfect for gaining attention and attraction at those get togethers and special events. Sit on a rainbow of lights that can change with a smart device. Control the NeoPixel LED animations with the Adafruit Bluefruit Connect LE app for iOS or Android.
