Adafruit Weekly Editorial Round-Up: Raspberry Pi Turns 9, NPR radio with an Adafruit PyPortal and CircuitPython, Animatronic Cosplay Wings & More!
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.
Raspberry Pi turns 9 this year! Although we can’t Jam this year, we can get together virtually to make exciting Raspberry Pi projects from home! Don’t forget to check out the Adafruit blog, where we will be sharing some of our favorite Raspberry Pi blog posts and Learn Guides from throughout the year! Check out the birthday breakdown!
Take off and soar with these animatronic cosplay wings. The 3d printed back plate holds metal gear servos which are strong enough to support light to medium weight wings, and the lipoly battery will keep them flapping for hours. Read more.
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.
