The NFC-WISP is an open source platform, with hardware and firmware freely available to collaborators.
The team paired an Android phone to the NFC-WISP and employed a wireless power harvester microchip to gain energy from NFC [near-field communication] transactions between the phone and WISP, which is then stored in a 1mAh battery that is 0.17mm thin. Think of the Android phone as the electrical outlet into which the display is plugged.
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.
