Few years ago I was so lost while learning electronics. Then I found Adafruit guides -- it was empowering and exciting! Suddenly, I didn’t feel so dumb or alone. This month, I published my own Adafruit Learn Guide – it feels incredible to give back to the community that has given me so much.
I just got myself a shiny new Glowforge laser cutter, and seized the very first excuse I could take to make a gift: My boyfriend's mom's birthday card! I only had a few hours to make it – I didn't think about it until the night before haha 😅. Let's take a look at how I made it.
What time is it? What day is it? No one really knows anymore. This clock won't help you tell exact time, but it does try to capture this pervasive, ubiquitous mood in this global pandemic. Inspired by my favorite mental refuge: Animal Crossing New Horizons. Powered by Adafruit and CircuitPython.
...so I made my own! This is a quick make, written in CircuitPython with a Circuit Playground Express. It activates with a loud sound, counts down 20 seconds, blinks some lights at you, and plays some sounds to make you feel like you just opened an 8-bit treasure box!
The idea for this project was simple: What can I do with this wonderful crystal I procured from @sehulrburt ? It became an adventure in 3D modeling and iteration -- I finished and iterated until I was happy with it. Read on for a chronicle of this journey!
I'm a little obsessed with rings at the moment, so I created my own version of an NFC transit card ring -- inspired by @sailorhg's Electrocuties post! Read on to find out how to easily make your own!
I made a ring! It's using this special material that looks opaque but it actually lets light shine through beautifully. This was a pretty simple project, and you can do it too!
Tomorrow is NYE 2020, and I just couldn't resist making a blinky hat to welcome the new year.
This post details my build process for this google-home-connected origami wall art, powered by Particle and inspired by GiantOrigami! I call this piece Serenity. Read on to find out how to make your own.
I attended Hackaday Supercon this past weekend, and I have so many thoughts and feels, but before I procrastinate I'd like to show how I built these little badgey things I gifted new #supercon friends! I'm calling them badgey thingies but let me know if you have any suggestions 😅 I
How I made my first electric vehicle, what I learned along the way, and how YOU can build one too!
