Issue 17 – HackSpace magazine @HackSpaceMag by @devinck Adafruit LoRa Bonnet & LoRa RadioFruit 10 out 10! @raspberry_pi
Issue 17 – HackSpace magazine has a great feature this month “Long-range radio communications made easy with LoRa – Adding low-power communications to your project has never been easier” by Marc de Vinck pages 116 to 119.
LoRa is hoping to be the Internet of Things (IoT) standard, allowing multiple manufacturers to create a variety of different clients that can connect to a LoRa WAN, enabling global radio connections. Although you can also do point-to-point communications without connecting to a WAN, adding a gateway allows for true global communications.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
