This FeatherWing has so much stuff going on, we could not fit any more parts on the PCB! There's a 0.96" 160x80 Color TFT Display with 16-bit full color capability. And, so you can make a proper UI we added a 5-way navigation switch and two push buttons. The joystick can go left, right, up, down and 'in' for selection. Two buttons on the side can change modes or whatever you like.
We're going to make a small mailbox to sit on your desk and notify you about incoming emails. When a new email is received, it raises a flag and gently lowers it back down. It's a fun, easy, introductory project to the Internet-of-Things by making things move using Adafruit IO with If-This-Then-That.
What's better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! The matrices use a driver chip that does all the heavy lifting for you: They have a built in clock so they multiplex the display. They use constant-current drivers for ultra-bright, consistent color, 1/16 step display dimming, all via a simple I2C interface. Here is a detailed guide showing you how to solder, wire and control the display.
Are you the kind of person who doesn't like taking down the skeletons and spiders until after January? Well, we've got the development board for you. This is electronics at its most spooky! The Adafruit HalloWing is a skull-shaped ATSAMD21 board with a ton of extras built in to make for an adorable wearable, badge, development kit, or the engine for your next cosplay or prop.
You're a human! Right? For now anyway... There's a red pulsing in the distance... NO! A ZOMBIE! You're losing health, but what's this? A white pulsing from around a corner, a healer! You'll stay human for a little longer... We've written up a fun game for you to play with Circuit Playground Express and CircuitPython or MakeCode. Hopefully you'll be a human long enough to check out this guide!
This stylish neo-pixel clock is built with a Feather M0. You can make it talk, play music, play chimes, and play animation patterns. You can also set the time and control options using an infrared remote, Bluefruit Connect app, or touch controls. The guide includes a 3D printed case design where you can create your own custom case out of cardboard, wood or any other material.
