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.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
