Assistive Tech web interface for target practice at gun range with Raspberry Pi, Pi Wing (FEATHER adapter and CRICKIT) @at_makers @raspberry_pi @adafruit #adafruit

Assistive Tech web interface for target practice at gun range with Raspberry Pi, Pi Wing (FEATHER adapter and CRICKIT) …. (video). As seen on the show and tell!

Micheal (about him here) he says about himself’ “he doesn’t walk, nor does he breathe without the assistance of machines… Michael also doesn’t speak due to a little breathing tube in his throat.” Micheal has SMA, spinal muscular atrophy (This American Life).

This quick video shows how we automated a pistol for Mike Phillips to check off an item on his “Things to Do” list. We also talk about the Raspberry Pi – Feather adapter I made and how we plan to use web interfaces to automate future projects.

On Saturday at 2pm ET (June 23, 2018) watch the event live on Facebook:

You can read Mike’s blog here:

And the GitHub repository for our hardware is here:

ATMakers.org introduces Makers and Assistive Technology (AT) users and give these two communities the tools they need to collaborate.

AT users and those who support them desperately need engineers and technologists to help them with everyday tasks. High School STEM and Robotics students, hobbyists & DIY electronics enthusiasts have the skills necessary to create innovative solutions today:

Update – Here’s Bill’s overview and video.


Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in! adafruit.com/mastodon

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.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
