I’m super happy to present you my latest design. I took advantage of this quarantine period to learn a bit more about programming, and I set up several Raspberry Pi (RPi) as small home servers for several applications (chat, home cloud, VPN, etc.). However, after a while, I ended up having several raspberry pi hanging around my router. With the heat we’ve had recently, the Pi’s were reaching over 55°C. Even though it’s not a real problem, I thought that having a system to store them together and keep them cool would be a good thing for the upcoming summer. I have a hard drive bay attached to my NAS, and I though that such system would be inspiring and that is why I come with a raspberry pi bay where we can easily and quickly swap pi drives for different applications and tests.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.
