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.

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.
