Get ready to tune in for a special AdaBox 011 Unboxing take-over on Ask an Engineer! Join John Park at 8pm EST / 5pm PST this Wednesday, 4/10/2018 for the live unboxing of the IoT device themed PyPortalAdaBox 011 — Ladyada and Mr. Ladyada will be in the chat to answer your questions!
Reach out beyond your desk – to the stars and beyond, with PyPortal! This ADABOX features a new, easy-to-use loT 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!
Thanks to the generous sponsorship and support from Analog Devices and Digi-Key, we’ve even included a fancy precision temperature sensor! Each PyPortal comes with an ADT7410 sensor built right in, so you can display the local temperature or use the PyPortal as a remote temperature logger and sensor that uploads data to our free adafruit.io loT service.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
