Harness the power of nature with your PyPortal by building an internet-connected Weather Station!
This guide will guide you through building an internet-connected weather station, complete with sensors to measure everything from the wind speed to the amount of volatile organic compounds which are present in the air.
This weather-station doesn’t just display temperature on the PyPortal’s 3.2″ 320 x 240 color TFT screen – it also wirelessly sends data to Adafruit IO for real-time visualization and logging using the easy-to-use Adafruit IO CircuitPython library.
Want to record LOTS of data with your PyPortal? Using a STEMMA cable, you can connect as many I2C breakouts as your heart desires and send the data to the world’s best data service – Adafruit IO?
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.
