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.
It’s just a BLINK to the left, and then a SPARKLE to the the ri-i-i-i-ight… This Halloween we’re going to glam it up, and shine brighter than ever! In this ADABOX we’ll give you 2000+ rainbow pixels to customize for the ultimate expressive display.
With a bit of a mind flip… make a mesmerizing digital sand box or huge spooky eyes for your windowsill. Space out on sensation…. playing your favorite animated GIFs or the latest tweets. Nothing can ever be the same…once you have a Matrix Portal and a 64×32 RGB Matrix display! This WiFi-connectable display is like a little bit of Times Square brought into your home.
