The Open Book is an open-hardware device for reading books in all the languages of the world. It includes a large screen and buttons for navigation, as well as audio options for accessibility and ports to extend its functionality. Its detailed silkscreen, with the all the manic energy and quixotic ambition of a Dr. Bronner’s bottle, aims to demystify the Open Book’s own design, breaking down for the curious reader both how the book works, and how they can build one for themselves.
The HMIFeatherWing gives you the possibility to easily add a HMI with a display and a joystick to your project. Just plug it on top of your Feather board and you can implement any HMI or menu structure you want.
The Feather Wing has a EA DOGM132-5 2.1″ display (https://www.lcd-module.com/fileadmin/eng/pdf/grafik/dogm132-5e.pdf) with a ST7565 controller and 132 x 32 pixel. The feather wing allows to control the backlight with PWM so you can dimm it and turn it off and on. There exists versions of this display with black or blue color and even a transflective one which even works with or without backlight and is readable in full sun light. You can use any Arduino library for ST7565 controllers or my DogGraphicDisplay library: https://github.com/generati
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
