Display Your Team’s Slack Messages on a Scrolling Marquee
Super into this project from Chris Buttery on Hackster.io. Definitely a better alternative to an accidentally unmuted “PING!”
Looking for something IoT and humorous that I could incorporate into the workspace, I thought about how I could combine our team’s Slack app with a Photon-powered scrolling marquee. The device firmware will loop any message twice. An existing message will be overwritten by a new message.
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.
