ADAFRUIT WEEKLY ROUND-UP


We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.


BLOG

We’ve got a new Circuit Playground Video!

Circuit Playground: N is for Noise

You can’t see it or hear it, but it sure can effect your electronics! Adabot and Minerva set out to solve the mystery of electrical noise … and maybe even watch a movie together.

More BLOG:

We had another wacky yet wonderful week here at Adafruit. We covered A LOT, but see below for some of our blog highlights from over the last few days:

LEARN

Tightrope Unicycle Bot: Step right up and build a robot that rides a unicycle on a tightrope!

Adabot has always wanted to join the circus — and you can help Adabot fulfill this dream by building a tightrope riding, balanced unicycle bot!

This project uses the Circuit Playground Express for brains, and the Crickit platform to provide the power to the gearbox DC motor.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
