The Onboard Wheelchair Lighting System @Facelesscog @disabilibuddies #OWLS
Jeff Lowes posts on Twitterthe prototype case for OWLS, the Onboard Wheelchair Lighting System:
This is the prototype case for the OWLS, and I couldn’t be happier about how it’s turning out. I’ve already finalized the design by adding some more surface detail (so the paint job will end up looking a LOT better by the time it’s done) and I’ve ordered the acrylic I need to cut out the final version. Once that’s done, I’ll attach the magnets, then I’ve got the official Mark 1 of the OWLS!
Sharing with Adafruit because all the electronics were purchased from their online store, and the sheer amount of information and tutorials that can be found on their site is staggering, so thanks guys!
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.
