We’ve got two more limited edition enamel pins in the store! We won’t have these pins for long, so once they’re gone, that’s it! Get yours today!
First up, Blinka Ouroboros!
The ouroboros is a compelling, allegorical symbol appearing in numerous settings of Greek, Egyptian, Hindu, and Renaissance ancient world mythologies. Translated to “tail-devourer” in Greek, the ouroboros represents repetition, renewal, and the eternal loop of time.
Just like CircuitPython. Wait, what? No, really! Hear me out. Python is an interpreted language with the ability to interpret itself. This means we get cool stuff like eval() and lambda(). Heck, you can even build a Y combinator, the function that can create recursive functions. How’s that for eating your own tail?
But these enamel pins won’t last long, so get yours today!
Next up, Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity!
The Internet of Things can be in all the things! Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity is here to help you learn how to connect everything you need and nothing you don’t. No gloomy, overcast skies here! The possibilities are endless, especially since the technology’s advancing almost every day, with Adafruit at the forefront of innovation.
If walls could talk. If fridges could email. If toasters could tweet. If garbage cans could blog. If sinks could post stories. If stoves could code.
Whether you’re making projects with Feather Huzzah, or cobbling IoT beginner kits like the Microsoft IoT Pack, Nimbus will make all your IoT dreams come true (from anywhere!)
This little cloud’s cute smile and warm embrace will shine brightly over your maker work. Let Nimbus be your new meteorological amigo and pin Nimbus to your jacket or messenger bag with its sturdy butterfly clasp!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
