Remotely Update Your Status on a Standard 16×2 LCD via WiFi | #IoT #IoTuesday @Estranged
HUZZAH! Rad project – and excellent walkthrough – by Mark Fischer: WiFi LCD Status Screen. Mark posted about the project over on our Discord channel, which you should totally check out and engage with our community in that space. (And if you post your project, it might show up here on the blog!)
I recently picked up one of Adafruit’s new HUZZAH32 Feather development boards, without having a clear project in mind for it. However after browsing the Adafruit forums, I stumbled across someone who was making a sort of status screen for their office, and I thought I would try that out.
The basic idea is to have a little box with an LCD screen on it which would display my current status. Like, if I’m in a meeting, at lunch, or home sick.
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.
