“Internet of Things” #IoT – Help name the friendly cloud entity…

Pt 1227

We have a series of “Internet of Things” projects and products (Tweet-a-watt, IoT printer, IoT camera, etc) – so we wanted to have a cute little friendly icon. Here’s what we came up with, the cloud entity does not have a name. Feel free to suggest one in the comments here or over on Google+


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Suggestion: ‘IoTa’ (pronounced like ‘Yoda’) which stands for ‘Internet of Things apparatus’ (or appliance, but I prefer apparatus since it can be singular or plural)

    I can see a spin-off site with the domain iotafruit.com which is currently available.
