Take Flight with Feather entries: Open Book Feather and HMI FeatherWing #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 A WEEK LEFT TO ENTER – enter by December 31st!

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

The Open Book Feather

By joey castillo:

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.

HMI FeatherWing

By bernhard:

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

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
