NEW GUIDE: AdaBox 009 Learn Guide @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #adabox009 #halloween

AdaBox 009 is on it’s way! If you are one of the fortunate 4,000 subscribers, it won’t be long before this spectacular — and SPOOKY — box of goodies lands on your doorstep!

SPOILER ALERT! If you would prefer to save the surprise for yourself when you open up the box, do not read on! Don’t look at the guide, full of all of its wonderful projects and descriptions of the delectable electronic wonders you’ll be receiving!

If you want to play along at home, we’ll be doing the Live AdaBox 009 Unboxing at 8pm EST,  Wednesday, 10/10/2018. Live text chat in discord in the #livebroadcast channel, and we’ll have live video on YoutubeTwitchPeriscope (Twitter) and Facebook.

That said, if you’d prefer an early peek, continue on, intrepid soul!!

Now, you can check out the AdaBox 009 Learn Guide!!!



Are you the kind of person who doesn’t like taking down the skeletons and spiders until after January? Well, we’ve got the ADABOX for you. This is electronics at its most spooky! ADABOX 009 is Halloween themed, for all of us who love scares, costumes,  and (of course!) candy. OK, so we didn’t fill this ADABOX with candy corn, but we did curate a collection of inspiring electronics to make your Halloween more electric. You might have so much fun, you’ll celebrate it year round!

This super creepy Halloween themed guide will guide you in learning to power your props, costumes, and interactive projects with the Adafruit HalloWing M0 Express — the world’s first and best skull-shaped ATSAMD21 microcontroller board! It’s packed full of goodies, including a 1.44″ full color TFT screen, accelerometer, NeoPixel output port, light sensor, speaker output, capacitive touch TEETH, sensor inputs, and much more!

We’ve created lots of really fun projects that you can build with the HalloWing and the terrific additional goodies in the AdaBox. You’ll have a haunted good time building scary skull props with the human-detecting PIR sensor, create glowing laser swords with the NeoPixel strip, and have a monstrous look at your unsuspecting trick-or-treaters with the lens and eyeball project!

You’ll learn lots of terrific techniques for coding the HalloWing to do your bidding in CircuitPython and Arduino. We hope you have a ghoulishly good time exploring AdaBox 009 and the Learn Guide!


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.
