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.
From our Ladyada …
“I love having one of these chill YouTube ‘radio’ streams going on while I code, but I dont like having a separate browser window open just to play music. Then I thought “hey lets have a Pi 4 do it for me!” The Braincraft hat has a display where we have a Chromium Kiosk window open so the adorable animation plays. Audio comes out of the onboard I2S codec for great sound – I’m using headphone/line out to a speaker Phil gave me, but it also has speaker drivers. The onboard on/off switch acts as an easy mute. Next up we’ll add the joystick to control volume up/down and maybe select different streams left/right.”
This is the stream we like to listen to but there’s lots of different ones on YouTube available! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qap5aO4i9A

Never let your cat fool you into an extra meal again 🙂
Did you feed the cat this morning? Would the cat tell you if you did? Of course not – food is an indoor pet’s main source of entertainment. Using MagTag, we can create a clock that sets itself and allows you to save a reference to the last time you fed the cat – simultaneously maintaining your pet’s healthy weight, and your sanity.
Bonus: it’s compatible with dogs as well.
