One Drop has released a blood glucose monitor that is so “shiny and chrome” that Mad Max would be envious. This blinged out diabetic device includes a few layers of offerings which are ideal for biohackers:
Bluetooth syncing with iOS / Apple Watch and Droid support
Subscription Based Unlimited Test Strips (app monitors and sends more as you deplete yours)
Exercise Tracking (integrates with Health Kit)
Integrates with Apple CareKit (patient/doctor information gathering)
Low Carb Approach to Diet – Nice to see an app encouraging carb counting
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
