Ever wanted to monitor your city’s Current Weather
Conditions, Carbon Footprint, Noise and Pollution levels? Do you want be a Climate Change Crusader or set-up your own Tweeting Weather Station and share your local weather conditions with the world?
Meet Tweeting Weather IoT Station aka TWIST – a DIY, Open-Source
Environmental Monitoring and Meteorological Data Acquisition Platform. The purpose of TWIST is so that individuals and communities can collect data of what’s actually happening in their environment and share this data on social media such as Twitter.
TWIST is an Internet of Things (IoT) powered platform.
The brain of TWIST is an Intel Edison Board.
TWIST is compatible with a variety of sensors.
All code, design files(schematics & PCB layout) are Open-Source. This means that anyone can contribute to the TWIST platform by sharing code and schematics for different sensors.
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.
