NEW GUIDE: Android GBoard Morse Code Control with Circuit Playground Express #AdafruitLearningSystem

gboardmorse

Let’s face it, keyboard input can be hard both on mobile devices. It gets even harder when one needs adaptive/assistive technologies (AT).

If you have an Android device, there is some way cool ways to overcome this – use your electronics as an external keyboard!

Google’s GBoard keyboard is very flexible, allowing both on-screen and external input. And it also has a Morse Code to text translator!

This guide shows you how to load GBoard and hook up Adafruit’s Circuit Playground Express to send keypresses via buttons and capacitive touch.

So if you are a Morse/Ham enthusiast or looking to make more adaptive/assistive technology, check out this tutorial!

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.
