It’s been a while since I’ve been posting a lot on YouTube. I wanted to create a list of Projects that I would like to work on in 2019:
Getting the Arduino Mega Sensor Shield (currently have Version 2.0 but might get version 2.4) working on an Adafruit Grand Central with CircuitPython.
The above board will host various sensors such as IR sensors, the Ultrasonic Ping Sensor, Light Level, and other similar type sensors.
I would like to see an RA8875 LCD Panel Driver working in CircuitPython.
Also I would like to see the DS3231 Clock Module working with CircuitPython.
Another project I attempted to work on last year included displaying characters on the HalloWing, but found out it is only capable of displaying images, so I would like to see a character library available.
I’m sure I will come up with more projects throughout the year, but these are projects that would be nice to work on in CircuitPython.
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
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
