Take Flight with Feather entries: TinyOWL and Near Field Feather #FeatherContest @Hackaday @DigiKey @Adafruit

The Take Flight with Feather Contest is running from now to December 31st – see all the details in the kickoff post!

HURRY! LESS THAN 2 WEEKS LEFT TO ENTER!

We’re going to highlight entries posted on Hackaday.io two at a time. Here are today’s entries:

TinyOWL

By Sam Joseph:

update: Name suggestion: TinyOWL – O.W.L = on when lit (led)

A Retro Feather — Using a ATtiny (which were released in 1999) Go back 20 Years 1999-2019 to control the enable pin

GET THAT PROJECT DOWN TO SLEEP POWER IN THE uA CONSUMPTION RANGE with ATtiny. Using an ATtiny board with low power sleep cycles to toggle “enable” on a Feather board to save power

Simply place this Feather shield on a ESP32… ESP8266…. M0…. M4.. etc..

Uploads to the ATtiny could be done with a DIP Socket or a “C Test Clip – SOIC 8-Pin”

PN7150 Near Feather Field Controller

By Gerriko IOT:

This is a proposed PN7150 NFC Controller Featherwing, as per Adafruit’s specification https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-feather/feather-specificationIt includes a PCB trace antenna. The antenna portion is also designed so that it can be snapped off and then joined with a uFL RF adapter cable.The antenna and controller board all fit within a Feather Tripler Protoboard.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
