A beautifully designed acrylic biosphere to simulate a space environment where plant care is fully automated. -

Building a Cute CO2 Gauge


“I like looking at the little guy nudging me to open my windows more often”. This internet-connected CO2 gauge designed by Cyrill is unobtrusive, doesn’t require the use of a mobile phone, and is adorable! -

OpenAI Image Descriptors with the MEMENTO Camera


This is a great project from Adafruit’s Liz Clark to illustrate the power of OpenAI’s image description model and the new Adafruit MEMENTO camera kit. Images taken with the Adafruit MEMENTO camera are sent to OpenAI “to request a description of the image with various prompts”. The OpenAI response is visible on the camera’s display. - Adafruit Learning System

Never Miss a Meeting Ring


A wearable ring that changes colors to alert you of meetings and events. The LED lights signal your availability to other people in your house - “Green means you’re good to go, yellow signals a meeting soon, and red warns that your meeting is wrapping up. It’s intuitive, unobtrusive, and designed for the modern remote worker.” -

Light Vader – Haptic Light Dimmer


Christoph Döberl tweaked a motor fader from a mixpanel to use it as an internet-connected light dimmer with lots of IoT magic. - Adafruit Blog

IoT Bird Feeder Camera


This project is perfect for the spring season! A simple, internet-connected bird feeder camera with a sturdy 3D-printed enclosure. The camera detects birds (or other critters) and uploads them to a webpage. - Adafruit Blog

We want your feedback about Adafruit IO (and WipperSnapper firmware) to help us plan 2024 (and beyond) 🚀


Inspired by Scott’s blog post, CircuitPython 2024, the developers and designers on our IoT Platform, Adafruit IO, are requesting feedback (from you!) to help guide our development of this platform in 2024.

If you’re a current Adafruit Free IO user, an Adafruit IO Plus (paid) user, or have previously used Adafruit IO in the last year, we want to hear from you!

Support Adafruit


Here at Adafruit, we sell all of these amazing components, but we couldn’t find a good way to interact with them over the Internet. So, we decided to create our own IoT platform, and that’s Adafruit IO. It’s built from the ground up to be easy to use and platform agnostic (connect any development board or device!). For those who want to get a project off the ground without programming - Adafruit IO offers a No-Code interface for building IoT electronics projects using WipperSnapper, our open-source IoT firmware. Support Adafruit’s open-source development by subscribing to Adafruit IO Plus, the upgraded, all-systems-go version of the Adafruit IO service.
