Are you the kind of person who doesn't like taking down the skeletons and spiders until after January? Well, we've got the ADABOX for you. This is electronics at its most spooky! ADABOX 009 is Halloween themed, for all of us who love scares, costumes, and (of course!) candy. OK so we didn't fill this ADABOX with candy corn, but we did curate a collection of inspiring electronics to make you Halloween more electric. You might have so much fun, you'll celebrate it year round!
Sometimes we wonder if robotics engineers ever watch movies. If they did, they'd know that making robots into slaves always ends up in a robot rebellion. Why even go down that path? Here at Adafruit we believe in making robots our friends! This ADABOX is based around CRICKIT a Creative Robotics and Interactive Creations tool KIT. When paired with motors, servos, a Circuit Playground Express and your own creativity, you'll be able to craft your very own Robot Friend!
A fundamental guide for creating things with corrugated fiberboard and paperboard, scavenged from cardboard shipping boxes, tubes, and other packaging. You'll learn to cut, crease, score, bend, and fold cardboard to meet your design goals. We'll cover gluing, taping, and mechanically fastening cardboard edges, faces, and joints for building an array of essential designs.
Use your powers for good while teaching people about computer security! This Gemma M0 will pretend to be a USB keyboard when plugged into a host computer, and then it will inject the machine with commands to swap background images or leave warning messages that can't be ignored! Or, turn it into a USB Mouse Jiggler for more antics!
The Circuit Playground Express has a built in infrared (IR) sensor, and it's very simple to decode the signals using CircuitPython, thanks to the Adafruit Infrared library. We'll program the CPX to read IR blasts from the mini remote control and use these commands to change the bright, beautiful NeoPixels. Plus, we'll defuse the light and dress it up with an inexpensive hobby store ornament and festive puff balls!
If walls could talk. If fridges could email. If toasters could tweet. If garbage cans could blog. If sinks could post stories. If stoves could code. The Internet of Things can be in all the things. Adafruit, Digikey, and Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity are here to help you learn how to connect everything you need and nothing you don't.
