Raspberry Pi powered Roller Blind Controller @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Great project for beginners from Paweł Jarosz, Alicja Prussakowska, and pawe up on Hackster.io.
We think it is boring to open and close again and again roller blinds. It is simple to add some motor to make it move, but we want to control it via internet, so we decided to use Core2, because it provides IoT features in easy way. We wanted to create user-friendly DIY mechanism for roller blind, so we designed 3D printed elements.
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.
