Light-up Chanukah Sweater #WearableWednesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2018/12/19/light-up-chanukah-sweater-wearablewednesday/

Very cool project from Sahrye on Instrucables:

Its holiday party season and this year you can be the shining star of the party with a light-up menorah sweater! This is a sewn circuit project using relatively inexpensive materials that are easily found online and at the craft store. Even better, the project has switches for each “candle” so you can light up different lights for each night!

Honda tests self-driving, off-road “Autonomous Work Vehicles”
https://blog.adafruit.com/2018/12/19/honda-tests-self-driving-off-road-autonomous-work-vehicles/

Via New Atlas

They’re almost cute, these little seatless quadbikes, and they can be programmed to autonomously perform a bunch of handy tasks outdoors. Honda has been testing prototypes in search and rescue, firefighting, construction, agriculture, landscaping and snow removal applications, and is looking for partners to come on board to further the technology.

Sensor-Wearing Bees Monitor Crops
https://blog.adafruit.com/2018/12/19/sensor-wearing-bees-monitor-crops/

via MOTHERBOARD

The researchers say they envision their bee swarm someday being used on farms to collect humidity and temperature data across a field to help farmers better understand their crops. Agricultural drones are already a big market for data collection and optimization of crop fields; using bees instead could pinpoint data down to a much smaller, more specific scale, according to the researchers.

Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Robotics with CRICKIT!
https://blog.adafruit.com/2018/12/05/373190/

Today we’ll be looking at robotics Adafruit style with CRICKIT! Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino.

Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids right away! You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Adafruit Grand Central - Coming soon, sign up!
https://www.adafruit.com/product/4064

Are you ready? Really ready? Cause here comes the Adafruit Grand Central featuring the Microchip ATSAMD51. This dev board is so big, it's not named after a Metro train, it's a whole freakin' station!

This board is like a freight train, with its 120MHz Cortex M4 with floating point support. Your code will zig and zag and zoom, and with a bunch of extra peripherals for support, this will for sure be your favorite new chipset.

The Grand Central is the first SAMD board that has enough pins to make it in the form of the Arduino Mega - with a massive number of pins, tons of analog inputs, dual DAC output, 8 MBytes of QSPI flash, SD card socket, and a NeoPixel.

To start off our ATSAMD51 journey we are going large with the Mega shape and pinout you know and love. The front half has the same shape and pinout as our Metro's, so it is compatible with all our shields. It's got analog pins where you expect, and SPI/UART/I2C hardware support in the same spot as the Metro 328 and M0. But! It's powered with an ATSAMD51P20.
