Turn your Raspberry Pi into a Scan-To-Cloud Device

Today, I created an interesting DIY solution for uploading documents to a cloud service without spending much time or money doing so!

I did some research and stumpled upon the great the solution from Eduardo Luís: http://eduardoluis.com/raspberry-pi-and-usb-network-scanner/. Eduardos solution scans tiff files to email – emulating a basic function of modern desktop scanners in a device with only a single button.

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.
