The smart toilet light project brings IoT to your bathroom. IoT, or Internet of Toilets, is the popular industry buzzword to describe a connected social network of intelligent toilets. With the smart toilet light you can create a light that illuminates your toilet bowl based on data from the internet. For example your toilet can shine red if it’s going to rain, or glow yellow if it’s sunny and clear outside. Not only is the smart toilet light a useful aid to find the toilet in the dark, but it’s a real source of information to help you plan for your day!
This project is built with a Feather Huzzah ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller and a 8mm NeoPixel LED. You can 3D print a case and a LED clip to hold the hardware near the toilet bowl. By connecting toAdafruit IO the ESP8266 can listen for color and animation commands that are sent from other services like If This Then That (IFTTT), Zapier, and more. You’ll have your toilet pulsing and flashing different colors from the internet in almost no time!
As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.
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.
