Adafruit Weekly Editorial Round-Up: May 23rd – May 29th
ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP
We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.
Tiny Machine Learning on the Edge with TensorFlow Lite Running on SAMD51 (video and/or skip to the demo part at 7 min 28 secs). You’ve heard of machine learning (ML), but what is it? And do you have to buy specialty hardware to experiment? If you have some Adafruit hardware, you can build some Tiny ML projects today!
Our 1,900th guide has landed in the Learn System! It’s John Park’s Trash Panda 2: Garbage Day and it’s lots of fun! You can make it with MakeCode Arcade, and mod and hack it all you like.
In Trash Panda 2: Garbage Day, you play as the suburban dweller just trying to get some sleep when the raccoons and cats decide its time to make noise and throw garbage our of the trash bins! You must try to stop them by shining your flashlight on them. But you can only play at night, so be sure that your PyGamer or PyBadge’s light sensor indicates it’s dark out!

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.
