RASPBERRY PI AND AMAZON ALEXA…TOGETHER IN A COZY OUTDOOR ENCLOSURE
So what on earth would you do with this combination? You can do two things to be exact, you can make an outdoor weather station using the Raspberry Pi / the Pi Sense Hat and use an Echo Dot to create an outdoor entertainment system connecting her to an outdoor speaker system or Bluetooth speakers to stream your favorite internet radio station. I’ll be honest, this project is not for the faint of heart and there are a few things you’re going to need in order to build this project including some laser cut pieces
View my blog for detailed assembly instructions, a complete print and hardware bill of materials and for details about the weather station project here:
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
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.
