Always running around and forgetting whether or not you shut your door? Connect your Adafruit Huzzah32 board to the internet so you can always know if you left the door open!
In this project, you’ll wire up a reed switch door sensor to a Huzzah32 and then learn how to use Adafruit IO WipperSnapper capability to make a door alarm without any code! WipperSnapper is a really easy way to set up your device to interface with loads of sensors and devices and send it to Adafruit IO. From there, your possibilities are basically endless.
Tiny LED lights that are both wireless and battery-less are wonderful accessories for scale models, LEGO-compatible brick builds, and table-top gaming. This guide shows how you can add these delightful LEDs and their inductive charging coils to your designs.
You’ll also learn how to build a shelf base and back stand to conceal the induction coil.
ALS Deep Cut
With so many guides on the Adafruit Learning System, some amazing guides of years past get buried and lost. ALS Deep Cuts brings these guides back up to the surface. This week’s guide is from back in 2014.
Build a chest-mounted cosplay project with a 3D printed UniBeam! In this project, we’ll show you how to use 3D printing and electronics to build the infamous repulsion weapon from ironman. This project was built in collaboration with James Bruton from XRobots.
This 3d printed build was made to go inside of James’ Hulkbuster project. The Hulkbuster is a massive Iron Man-inspired suit James is building with 3D printed parts and various other materials. Watch James’ video and checkout his YouTube channel for more details on his Hulkbuster project.
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.
