We 💕 microcontrollers and we get asked pretty often how to choose a microcontroller so we put together this guide. We hope it helps all you gifters out there. Hey, who are we to judge, we hope it helps all your gifees out there too 🙃
If you are in the market for some making, these projects from the Adafruit Learning System might be perfect for your one true…whatever!!
If the person you care about happens to have a fuzzy little squish (aka a cat), there’s a very good chance they’ll get some use out of this Automatic Cat Treat Dispenser. But at the end of the day, cats are weird, so we can’t guarantee this is universally loves by cats…although…our product testers seemed to enjoy the experience…. If you’re not sure about treats, try out this HalloWing Interactive Cat Toy!
Remix this CircuitPython Snow Globe to feature a favorite shared memory, a beloved pet, a funny moment or even as a surprise reveal to another fun thing you’ve got up your sleeves. The options with this project are endless, as long as you can make it fit into the snow globe!
Do you have a special someone who thoroughly enjoys a good joke? Ever since John Park wrote up this Haunted Portrait project we can not stop imagining how fun it would be to gift someone a haunted self portrait. Or cat portrait. Yeesh, cats are really find their way into this gift guide…
This Meeting Time Keeping Stick def does need to be limited to the office! Are we crazy to suggest this has the potential to help in any situation where communication needs to happen? Ah, if only we had one of these back in student council… Seriously though, we think this would be a great gift for anyone seeking organized communication.
If you’ve gone on or are planning a trip with someone special we can only imagine how delighted they’d be with this Interactive Map. Nothing like hitting those aural memories
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
