One of the great joys of dense urban living is the seemingly non-stop barrage of something to do, somewhere. Tonight it’s ‘IoT Lightning Talks‘ presented by the IoT NY meetup, and registered talk-topics already include: sensor arrays, farm & agriculture, artificial intelligence, and even ‘hacking alzheimers.’ All powered by the IoT.
Join us for a fast-paced run down of IoT projects, prototypes, and early-stage startups in the tri-state area. We’ll be hosting lightning talks where each speaker or team has 5 minutes to present their idea/prototype/company, followed by brief Q&A.
If you’d like to take the mic and give a lightning talk, please sign up in advance on the google sheet 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.
