1. NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit AirLift – ESP32 WiFi Co-Processor Breakout Board: Give your plain ol’ microcontroller project a lift with the Adafruit AirLift – a breakout board that lets you use the powerful ESP32 as a WiFi co-processor. You probably have your favorite microcontroller (like the ATmega328 or ATSAMD51), awesome peripherals and lots of libraries. But it doesn’t have WiFi built in! So lets give that chip a best friend, the ESP32.


2. DIY Arduino Mini Laser Engraver: This neat laser engraver is built using two DVD writers and can engrave the surface of various materials.
