Digi-Key IoT Studio makes it easy to add motion sensing to wireless or cloud projects with preconfigured development boards such as the Adafruit ADXL343 FeatherWing. In this tutorial, Robin first explains how to set up the ADXL343 motion sensor in Digi-key’s DK IoT Studio using the proper elements and linking configurations to send X, Y and Z axis data values as well as a configurable vector calculation. The Adafruit ADXL343 Feather Wing has other features such as “Tap” detection function that may be added to a project.
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.
