Updating the standard Raspberry Pi Camera with cheap additional external lenses, Fish Eye, Zoom, Telephoto and Macro.
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on the blog, we featured Sam’s fantastic Robopunk Bluetooth Speaker Goggles!
I built a pair of speakers into some goggles because I thought it was so crazy that no one would’ve tried it yet. They’ve gotten a great response from friends, so I now share my wisdom with you. Yes, they do fit in front of your eyes, but they’re exactly as difficult to see out of as you’d expect. Also, they’re a little heavy to wear in front of your face all day. But if you build them, they WILL make you cool. Now be prepared to be the envy of the next block party! (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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
