HackSpace Magazine 17

Issue 17 — HackSpace magazine is here! This issue features Arduino and has some great Adafruit products & projects too!

Arduino is more than a company; it’s an ecosystem, a movement, and a state of mind. It’s hundreds of microcontroller boards that all run the same code, it’s libraries for almost any hardware a hobbyist is likely to come across, and it’s a range of development environments for different ranges of experience. For many people, the word Arduino is almost interchangeable with microcontrollers. This issue, we take a look at exactly what this all means in our cover feature.

Perhaps the most interesting recent development in Arduino is the Arduino IoT Cloud, which aims to make it easy to develop secure, robust Internet of Things appliances. We take a look at how all this works, by exploring the features and creating our own IoT lamp. If you’d rather use a different environment, we’re also looking at CircuitPython, with Sophy Wong’s Flappy Birds outfit, which is quite possibly the best games controller ever made.


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.
