A eInk nRF52840 Watch Running #CircuitPython #badgelife @arturo182 #35C3 @NordicTweets
Talk about bleeding edge technology!
@arturo182 posts on Twitter about his latest nRF based board build for the 35th Chaos Communications Congress (35C3), held this year 27-30 December in Leipzig, Germany.
The board is the size of a smartwatch and can accomodate a wristband. It uses a nice eInk display and a Nordic nRF52840 processor with wireless. And how is it programmed? Using the Adafruit CircuitPython language!
CircuitPython 4.0.0-alpha just came out with support for Nordic nRF52 chips and multiple languages. And this release does lack some of the basic plumbing as an alpha. But arturo182 is quite the Maker and got it up and running in record time.
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.
