A new #Adafruit #PyPortal badge by Les Pounder #Mu #CircuitPython @biglesp @Adafruit

Friday Fun: Circuit Py-FUN!!!

New today on Les Pounder’s blog is his conference badge made with an Adafruit PyPortal board programmed in CircuitPython.

Creating a conference badge that will act as a digital business card. It will have our logo, a picture of us or a project, and then a QR code containing our contact details (This is called a VCard and with it we can instantly drop a contact on to someones phone.)

Adafruit’s PyPortal is an Internet of Things (IoT) device that has WiFi, a 70mm by 50mm 320×240 resolution touchscreen, light sensor, temperature sensor, Neopixel, microSD slot and a speaker.

Powered by an ATSAMD51J20 CPU and with wireless connectivity provided by an ESP32 this is a lot of power in a small board. Smaller than a Pi Zero W and Hyperpixel screen!

To create a VCard QR code, Les used this website which is free and easy to use.

Check out the video below for the build and details on his blog post. Super job!


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.
