This week on the blog, we featured Benjamin Forta’s excellent GIANT Pi and Arduino powered Chanukah display!
Just in time for Chanukah, our bigger and better giant Chanukah display. This is Raspberry Pi and Arduino powered, and Adafruit fingerprints are all over it! The Neopixels are (obviously) all yours, it uses Trinket Pros, you may even recognize the enclosures. Thanks for your products and support, I am a fan (and have the credit card bills to prove it). You guys rock! (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.
