NEW PRODUCT - Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 Breakout
https://www.adafruit.com/products/2471

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!

The Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 breakout is what we designed to make working with this chip super easy and a lot of fun. We took a certified module with an onboard antenna, and plenty of pins, and soldered it onto our designed breakout PCBs. We added in:

 - Reset button,
 - User button that can also put the chip into bootloading mode,
 - Red LED you can blink,
 - Level shifting on the UART and reset pin,
 - 3.3V out, 250mA regulator,
 - Two diode-protected power inputs (one for a USB cable, another for a battery)

Two parallel, breadboard-friendly breakouts on either side give you access to:

 - 1 x Analog input (1.8V max)
 - 9 x GPIO (3.3V logic), which can also be used for I2C or SPI
 - 2 x UART pins
 - 2 x 3-12V power inputs, reset, enable, LDO-disable, 3.3V output

NEW PRODUCT - PLA/PHA bambooFill for 3D Printers - 1.75mm Diameter - 600g
https://www.adafruit.com/products/2475

Having a 3D printer without filament is sort of like having a regular printer without paper or ink.  And while a lot of printers come with some filament there's a good chance you've been printing up a storm and need something new.  That's why we've started carrying a complete line of 3D printing filament in a variety of colors!

This PLA/PHA bambooFill blend 1.75mm 600g spool from colorFabb is a great material for 3D printers. This amazing one of a kind filament will allow you to print with actual recycled bamboo at home! Your prints will look absolutely amazing and your 3d printer cave will smell like a woodshop!

Tips: Start out with a bit rougher layers, 0.2 – 0.27mm (for 0.4mm nozzle) this will ensure that you’re printing with a decent amount of material flow. This is important because it will make sure the material isn’t spending too much time in the hot-zone of the 3D printer, which will degrade the polymer.

This filament has been tested successfully on a wide variety of printers, working well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform colorFabb advises applying blue painter's tape to the build area. For heated build platforms colorFabb used a temperature of 55-60°C which will keep the print sticking to the platform. It can be printed straight on glass or with a bit of gluestick applied to it. They've also printed it succesfully on kapton tape with the same temperature settings. Testing showed reliable results using the all metal hot-ends, such as the E3D and the Makerbot Replicator 2 hotend. Hotends which use a teflon isolator coupler can generate adhesion to the bamboo filament possibly leading to clogs and is there for not recommended for novice users yet.

It's always a good idea to check what diameter and filament type your printers can handle before purchasing!

Make A Texting Pet Food Dish #AdafruitWeekendProject
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/24/make-a-texting-pet-food-dish-adafruitweekendproject/

Is checking and filling your pet food dish a constant daily chore? Have you ever wished you could be notified on your phone when the dish is empty? With this project you’ll learn how to build a pet food dish that does exactly that by sending an SMS text message when the dish is empty! This is way better than giving your pet a smartphone: our cat MOSFET ran up a huge texting bill and then refused to pay it.

Nope, solved the problem by modifying an automated food dispenser, and bought it online. ;)

Raspberry Pi Arcade Game High Score DIsplay for Multiple Locations @Raspberry_Pi#piday #raspberrypi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/24/raspberry-pi-arcade-game-high-score-display-for-multiple-locations-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Very cool project tutorial from instructables user stevemoseley.

This Instructable will show you how to use a Raspberry Pi board with an existing computer monitor to create an arcade game high score display for your home or office. You and your family or your co-workers can keep an eye on the latest high scores and get into a little trash talkin’. Since the display pulls all of the information it needs from the internet, you can have multiple displays showing the same information or several with the differences you decide.

Does anybody know if there any hooks in those arcade emulators to extract the hiscores automatically? Some game does store it, so this should be possible to access?

We love this project video from YouTube user John Wiggins!

Using some potentiometers, a tilt switch, a 8bit AD/DA, and ncurses, I made a digital etch-a-sketch all in C.

Piano Stairs with Arduino and Raspberry Pi #Arduino #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/24/piano-stairs-with-arduino-and-raspberry-pi-arduino-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

From Instructables user bonniee:

Who doesn’t love music? These Piano Stairs are an interactive, relatively portable, musical installation that can be applied to basically any stairwell. I built them for HackPrinceton along with my friends Erica Portnoy and Vincent Castaneda, and we won 2nd place in the hardware track. I’ve had requests to share my code and diagrams, so I decided to make an Instructable!
