DIY Diabetes Management Technology With Raspberry Pi

screen-shot-2014-11-26-at-11-20-35-am

Wired has a fascinating article about diabetics who are building and modifying devices to better manage their disease.  Although many advancements have been made in commercial diabetes management technology, many diabetics are frustrated with the slow pace of change and are taking things into their own hands to build their own devices to manage the disease.  Some of these tools include cloud-based applications for parents to monitor their children’s blood sugar levels while at school, or even a Raspberry Pi-based device to monitor and regulate insulin levels directly just like the body’s pancreas!  It’s amazing to see a community of people who are empowered to make their lives better through DIY and maker technology.

Diabetes Patients Are Hacking Their Way Toward a Bionic Pancreas


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.
