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.
Play an MP3 at 7pm every day in honor of healthcare workers!
Sometimes you can’t be around at exactly the right time every day to participate in the collective cheer for healthcare workers. This device will remember for you and participate on your behalf, even if you can’t. Sometimes we can all use a helping hand.
This project creates an automatic cheering device that will play an MP3 of a crowd cheering every day starting at 7 PM.
We’ve designed this project around the Feather system of boards, which makes the components modular and easy to put together and expand upon. It can be easily modified to play any MP3 of your choice, and to go off at any time of your choice.
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.
