Been thinking of building your own longboard the easy way?
Are you into technology?
Then this might be the perfect DIY project for you…
The Longboard Speedometer powered by a Raspberry pi displays your current speed, travelled distance and other on a 16×2 lcd in front of the board and a web page running on the pi.
For the longboard itself you need to be a little bit handy. You got to shape a board, dril holes, varnish. I had never really done something like this before and it was not hard at all.
This is an end project in my first year of ict university so to understand the electrics you will need to have basic understandings of making an electric circuit, coding in python, hmtl, css (+flask) and sql.
Whatsoever you can download all the files so you don’t need to exactually code something.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
