CircuitPython Connected Weather Cloud Lamp
Use CircuitPython to create a WiFi connected fluffy Weather Cloud that will get weather data from the OpenWeather API and visualize that information using light and sound. It's a cloud connected cloud.
Making a PyPortal User Interface with DisplayIO
The PyPortal can be just the right thing to provide an interactive display for your next IoT project, but it's not like you can just install an app to just make IoT-go-now. This guide will go over how Displayio can be used to create a multi-panel user interface that can take your project to the next level.
PyPortal MQTT Sensor Node/Control Pad for Home Assistant
One of the most exciting things about IoT and Smart Homes is collecting data that can be used to trigger automations. This project uses the Adafruit PyPortal to attach sensors and connect to Home Assistant using MQTT. Home Assistant information is displayed on the screen and buttons turn lights on or off.
Mini Smart Home with Huzzah, HASSio and Crickit
This is not just a doll house with a UI, this is a real Smart Home complete with networked lights, sensors, a fan, and even a door lock. This house even has its own server with a user interface and an easy way to create automations. The way this smart home works is very similar to how real smart homes are being put together today using MQTT, Wireless Networking and a localized IOT hub.

Set up Home Assistant with a Raspberry Pi
Home Assistant is an open source IoT server that is made to manage a local network of Smart Home devices. Basically it will let you take control of your own Smart Home data and devices without having to depend on remote network APIs. There are many secure ways to connect to this server from anywhere using secure connections as well. It's the best of both worlds for IoT.
Superhero Power Gauntlet
Iron Man inspired cosplay is rad, but who has the time to make an entire suit of armor. Hopefully this gauntlet will help get you started and it goes well with the Superhero Power Plant.
MIT App Inventor and Particle.IO
App Inventor is an easy way to make Apps for the Android platform. We will go through how to use App Inventor for communicating with any Particle device. This is setup to work with the Web Connected LED example app for the Particle Spark, Photon, or Electron.
Glowing LED Team Badge for Pokemon Go
Pokemon GO has shown us that people can really go crazy over running around our cities bent on catching imaginary animals. It has also shown us that people are going crazy over chasing down said animals at all hours of the night and not always paying attention to what is going on around them. This is amplified when we are talking about children that are having a blast literally trying to catch them all. Build a safety light that's also a lovely way to show team spirit with this no-solder project!
Remote Control with the Huzzah + Adafruit.io
This project will use one Huzzah WiFi board with 3 buttons to control an RGB LED connected to another. This will give you a physical internet-connected remote interface for an internet connected device.
