During last weeks we were working very hard creating a device, which helps people in a better day organisation. The device shows date with time, our events from a calendar, weather forecast and also breaking news. Everything you need to know at first sight.
An assistant is connected with a Wi-Fi wireless home network, that’s why all of data is always up-to-date. The only thing you need to do is plugging in the charger to the power source.
Walle is not only a main screen, on which we see preview of applications. When you click on one of the section you are moved to a fullscreen view, which contains extended information. You can for example get access to clear and beautiful full-size calendar – a smart calendar with short summary of upcoming events in each day.
Our device also has got built-in Amazon Alexa assistant, with whom you can have a normal chat like with a real person, but not only! We have created two Walle Controllers – the first for the light and the second one for the central heating system. They are standalone devices with wireless communication, that’s why Walle is able to easily control every kind of home automation.
So what is really Walle? It’s a complete home automation system!

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
