HackSpace Magazine is the monthly magazine for the modern maker! Issue #25 highlights the best toys, tools, and trinkets for your hacker Christmas list.
This issue is bootloaded (ok, forgive us) with tons of DIY tutorials (how to make beautiful, weird sounds with a NeoTrellis, linking your phone to your CircuitPython-running microcontroller to send data and commands, recreating the candle with Arduino and NeoPixels), an interview with Sam Underwood on why making, music, and why function comes before form, and more!
We’ve got a bunch left over from an AdaBox giveaway – so get your copy today!
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.
