RFID Tag Phone Case Changes Ringer Settings #WearableWednesday
Neat idea– change ringer settings on your phone by placing it in its case! Pearl Chen writes:
Have an Android phone with NFC capabilities? Make a multi-functional carrying case that automatically puts your ringer on silent, turns it up loud, or creates a Wi-Fi hotspot!
This NFC-enhanced slip case is constructed out of felt and sheet foam. Inside the case are 4 strategically placed NFC stickers stuck onto special metalized fabric that blocks the radio waves of NFC chips. This allows the case to have up to 4 sets of automated tasks assigned to it (versus 2).
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
