A Personal Compass using the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH32 @ESP32 @Adafruit @cogliano
Dan at Dan The Geek posts about a personal compass, which works like a regular compass, but instead of pointing to magnetic north, it points to a particular location of personal interest.
The Improved Personal Compass was built using the HUZZAH32 Feather (ESP32) and included the Feather Wing Tripler to incorporate 4 boards from the Adafruit Feather system. This made the project modular and easy to test items individually.
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.
