Phone Notifications with Glowing Dime is #Feather Powered
Beautiful thesis project from Silio Keiser on vimeo:
The device case was in part 3d printed and lathed out of chestnut wood. Inside the case there is a Adafruit Feather Huzzah esp8266 which is able to communicate troughWi-Fi to a smartphone. For the glowing effect ten LED’s are attached to theFeather. To power everything I used a 850mAh lipo battery. The code was written on the Arduino editor. For the LED’s I used the fastLED.h library and to control the LED’s trough the smartphone I used Blynk applications, as well as the Blynk library. The application was designed in Adobe Illustrator and withAdobe XD I created the prototype.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
