NEW GUIDE: ePaper FeatherWing Quote Display #Feather #ePaper #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #IoT @Adafruit @cogliano @ESP32net

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System: an Internet connected ePaper FeatherWing Quote Display

Build this quote display using the Adafruit HUZZAH32 (ESP32) Feather and ePaper FeatherWing. Add a LiPo battery and you have a portable quote display.

The great thing about ePaper displays is they keep their display even when power is disconnected. Combine that with the HUZZAH 32 Feather, which can power itself off and wake up at a specified interval, and you have a great symbiotic relationship. A battery powered ePaper display and HUZZAH Feather can continuously display an image for weeks and even months, depending on the battery size and how frequently the HUZZAH powers up to update the display.

This tutorial shows inspiring quotes from an Adafruit JSON feed, although you can display any information you want, locally or on the Internet. Check your follower count or the cartoon of the day, it’s up to you.

The parts snap fit together, no soldering required!
