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.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
