Pi Zero Visual Appointment Reminder #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
This is a handy project for reminding yourself of appointments and meetings with a Pi Zero! Via The MagPi.
It’s easy to get distracted at work and miss the Google Calendar reminders on your desktop and smartphone, especially if you have back-to-back meetings. To help avoid missing meetings, let’s create a Pi Reminder project, a visual notifier that uses the Raspberry Pi and a bunch of LEDs to remind you about upcoming appointments. Being visual-only, it has the advantage of not interrupting important phone calls or chats. The new Pi Zero W and Blinkt! have everything you need in a small, unobtrusive package. An easy project with very little setup.
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!

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.
