I always wanted to make a so called ‘Gorgy’ Clock. You see them often in music or TV studio’s. Now I could so I bought a cheap clock at Ikea and ripped out the inside, making room for the electronics and display.
Because it was to be my bedside clock, I thought of adding some extra features such as an IR remote and barometer- humidity and temperature sensor because I love Meteorology.
When I’m awake at night, I have something to look at: temperature (min/max), barometer trend of the last 24 hours and the air pressure change rate which is a very good indication of pending bad weather.
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.
