#AdafruitLearningSystem Weekly Update: Machine Learning Edition

This week we published a total of 8 new guides. Learn how to create a Sailor Moon Star Locket, take your CYBERDECK to the next level, and dive into machine learning with the Adafruit Braincraft HAT.

Machine Learning Week

This week we published three new guides on using the Adafruit Braincraft HAT with Lobe. This is a great way to get started with Machine Learning.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Lobe, where you can train Machine Learning models without writing a single line of code!! Lobe is free and easy-to-use, all you have to do is take pictures and label them and Lobe does the rest.

In this guide we’ll walk through training a Lobe model, exporting it, and running it on a Raspberry Pi 4.

Favorite New Guide

This week’s favorite new guide shows you how to create a stick person costume

Build a neon stick-person costume from LED neon strips. These strips glow really brightly when connected to power, without the need for additional controllers or code of any kind. Just solder them together, plug in your battery pack, and glow!

They come in a lot of different colors, so you can glow in style. Make one for everyone in your family for an unforgettable group costume next Halloween.

This tutorial will show you how to connect the strips together and power them, and make a simple velcro harness that straps on over your dark clothing to bring the costume to life. It’s easy to adjust to fit different sized people, and no sewing is required.

Suit up and let the dancing commence.

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 2015.

Laugh Track Jacket

Bring your own sound FX to the party! Turn a blazer into your own personal theme music machine, foley artist, or comedy audience. Battery powered speakers in the pockets blast your sound while membrane switches in the pocket and lapel activate the audio.


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.
