Unfortunately, there’s not much sun in the winter, so I came up with an indoor project to tackle issues I am experiencing at home: random power cuts. As with any similar problem, being able to log the frequency and duration of such events could potentially reveal patterns, helping to find the root cause of the issue. The idea is simple: whenever a power cut would occur, the PiJuice would keep the Raspberry Pi running during the outage and keep track of the start and end of the power cut by logging everything to a simple CSV file.

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.
