It's summer and you're sweating and your hair's all frizzy and all you really want to know is why the weatherman said this morning that today's relative humidity would max out at a perfectly reasonable 52% when it feels more like 77%. Enter the HDC1008 Temperature + Humidity Sensor - the best way to prove the weatherman wrong!
Wouldn't it be cool if, instead of having to give your dog-sitter a key to your place, you could just text your home to let her in? Now we build it ourselves using the new Lockitron body, Metro Mini (tiny Arduino-compatible) and a FONA 800 cellular module. Normally, a Lockitron has a built-in WiFi system for locking & unlocking via their App. Since they have redesigned their enclosure, we now have the 'guts' of the Lockitron available for hacking. There's just enough space inside for some tasty Adafruit electronics
Add some jazz & pizazz to your project with a color touchscreen LCD. This TFT display is 2.4" diagonal with a bright (4 white-LED) backlight and it's colorful! 240x320 pixels with individual RGB pixel control, this has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.
Light-up Frisbee-like discs have been on the market for quite a while, by now, and that's all well and good, but what fun is a blinkenlight if you can't write programs for it? And why would you stop at one blinkenlight? With these questions firmly in mind, we'll explore adding a Gemma-controlled 24-LED NeoPixel ring and a vibration sensor to the Flashflight Disc-O.
Incorporating Bluetooth in a project no longer requires the most advanced microcontroller or lots of code…our Bluefruit LE UART Friend and accompanying app for iOS and Android make it easy! Building upon our popular "Kaleidoscope Eyes" NeoPixel goggles project, this guide shows how Bluetooth LE can be used even with the most modest setup.
Would you like to add powerful and easy-to-use Bluetooth Low Energy to your wearable FLORA project? Heck yeah! With BLE now included in modern smart phones and tablets, its fun to add wireless connectivity. So what you really need is the new Adafruit Flora Bluefruit LE! The Flora Bluefruit LE makes it easy to add Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity to your Flora. Sew 4 traces (or solder 4 wires) and BooM! Bluetooth Low Energy!
Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? This HAT features a 2.4" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top!
Add Internet to your next project with an adorable, bite-sized WiFi microcontroller, at a price you like! The ESP8266 processor from Espressif is an 80 MHz microcontroller with a full WiFi front-end (both as client and access point) and TCP/IP stack with DNS support as well. While this chip has been very popular, its also been very difficult to use. Most of the low cost modules are not breadboard friendly, don't have an onboard 250mA 3.3V regulator or level shifting, and aren't CE or FCC emitter certified....UNTIL NOW!
PowerBoost 1000C is the perfect power supply for your portable project! With a built-in load-sharing battery charger circuit, you'll be able to keep your power-hungry project running even while recharging the battery! This little DC/DC boost converter module can be powered by any 3.7V LiIon/LiPoly battery, and convert the battery output to 5.2V DC for running your 5V projects.
A TFT panel connected to a Raspberry Pi without the use of an HDMI decoder? What is this sorcery??? It's the DPI Kippah from Adafruit! This HAT-like board snaps onto a Raspberry Pi B+, A+ or Pi 2 Model B and with a little software configuration, allows you to have what normally would go out the HDMI port come up on a nice little flat screen.
