Adafruit is all about do-it-yourself wearable electronics and customizing everyday objects to make your geeky life more fun - plus impress your friends! Customize your own 3D printed robot, or outfit a holiday sweater with built in speakers and a simple circuit board to play your carol of choice. Adafruit has hundreds of DIY kits and loads of free videos to learn how to engineer simple electronics into your life. From leveraging Arduino and Raspberry Pi to awesome ideas for upping your cosplay game, prepare to spend some of your holiday couch time scheming up new projects to learn more about combining science and tech with DIY and the maker mindset.
Many of these projects are great for kids, and earlier this year the company collected a playlist on their YouTube channel called Circuit Playground to prep your favourite budding evil mad scientist for a future full of engineering. Enjoy!
