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).
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
