COUGHING PLANTER #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

This fun project shared by msbirfday on Instructables uses a bunch of Adafruit gear and a Raspberry Pi Zero W

What’s this then?

A breathing, coughing, air-quality-sensing, Google-Sheets-logging, real-live-plant-having planter!

Using an air-quality sensor and a hidden Raspberry Pi Zero W, this little planter personifies a plant to sense indoor air quality.

Code and miscellaneous resources (laser cutter PDF and Fritzing model) are in the project’s Github repository.

Bill of Materials

  • Raspberry Pi Zero W (other models should be fine, with small changes to the code and potentially wiring. The wifi is used to log to Google Sheets, but is otherwise optional.)
  • An SGP30 air-quality sensor (we used the breakout board from Adafruit, but any similar one should work.)
  • A 2.5W mono speaker amp and small speaker (we used this amp and this speaker)
  • A Pimoroni Blinkt! LED strip (available here; you could also use a strip of 8 NeoPixels, with some small changes to the code)
  • A power adapter for the Pi (perhaps this one)

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.
