NEW TUTORIAL: Multi-tasking the Arduino - Part 3 - Unleashing the power of the NeoPixel!
https://learn.adafruit.com/multi-tasking-the-arduino-part-3

Digital RGB LEDs like the Neopixel are awesome for creating stunning displays and lighting effects.  But integrating them into an interactive project can be a challenge.  The Arduino is a single-minded little processor that only likes to do one thing at a time.  So how do you get it to pay attention to external inputs while generating all those mezmerizing pixel patterns?
Some of the most common Neopixel questions in the Adafruit forums are:
-How can I make my Neopixel project respond reliably to button presses?
-How can I run two (or more) different Neopixel patterns at the same time?
-How can I make my Arduino do other things while my Neopixel pattern is running?
In this guide, we’ll look at some ways to structure your Neopixel code to keep it responsive and make it more amenable to multitasking.

NEW TUTORIAL: Raspberry Gear - Upgrade your Sega Game Gear with a Raspberry Pi and 3.5 inch TFT display!
https://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-gear/introduction

In the earliest of the 90s, before Sega and Nintendo were best buddies, they went head to head in the handheld console market. Sega released their Game Gear, which had a ton of very interesting features, and was "technologically superior" to it's rival, Nintendo's Game Boy. However, user experience won out, and Nintendo's Game Boy was crowned the victor of this battle. The Game Gear faded into obscurity, forever in our hearts marked as 'pretty cool.'

So, why the handheld gaming history lesson? Well, today we're going to be giving the Game Gear a second life as a Raspberry Pi-based handheld!

We're gonna be modifying the Game Gear's case to fit the screen, and the new internal components. The button PCBs will be reused from the original motherboard, and we'll be adding a couple of capacitive pad buttons for extra inputs! There's quite a bit of soldering involved, lots of heatshrinking, and cutting of plastics & PCBs. Make sure you have your safety goggles and facemask ready!!

Texting Doormat with Intel Edison

Doorbells are so old-fashioned. Who wants to rely on user input to tell you when someone is at your front door when you can use a microcontroller to tell you?

BBC has a story on a modern day engineering marvel that’s often overlooked, the container ship.

“Natural Frequencies” at Berkeley’s Sather Tower #MusicMonday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/02/natural-frequencies-at-berkeleys-sather-tower-musicmonday/

This installation and performance includes a unique composition of bells (both recorded and live) and lighting modulated in real time by data from the UC Berkeley seismometer adjacent to the Hayward Fault. The title refers to the response of structures and systems to external forces.

Make your own audio and midi sequencer
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/02/make-your-own-audio-and-midi-sequencer/

This electronic instrument allows you to sequence and loop audio and MIDI data. Most of the time I use it to sequence drum samples so I can play around with different beats and rhythms. The really great thing about this instrument is that it is very portable, it fits in your hands easily, runs off a single 9 volt battery, and has a headphone jack that you can plug into.
