AdaBox011 – PyPortal: Reach out beyond your desk – to the stars and beyond – with PyPortal! This ADABOX features a new, easy-to-use IoT device that allows you to customize and create your very own “Internet of Things” portal. We take CircuitPython to the max, pairing a SAMD51 chip with a 3.2″ color TFT touchscreen and secure Wi-Fi co-processor.
With the open-source Python-powered PyPortal, you can fetch and display anything in the world: inspirational quotes, weather forecasts, your social media followers, cat photos, and more – over Wi-Fi with the latest technologies. Create little pocket universes of joy that connect to something good. You can even rotate it 90 degrees, now it’s a web-connected conference badge – and take #badgelife to the next level! See more!
Adafruit 2.13″ Monochrome eInk / ePaper Display FeatherWing – 250×122 Black and White: Easy e-paper finally comes to your Feather, with this breakout that’s designed to make it a breeze to add a monochrome eInk display. Chances are you’ve seen one of those new-fangled ‘e-readers’ like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper ‘static’ displays – that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper! See more!
Using our CircuitPython or Arduino libraries, you can create a ‘frame buffer’ with what pixels you want to have activated and then write that out to the display. Most simple breakouts leave it at that. But if you do the math, 200 x 200 pixels = 8 KBytes. Which won’t fit into many microcontroller memories. Heck, even if you do have 32KB of RAM, why waste 8KB?

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
