A Space Station tracker in the form of the Space Station #NeoPixels #Particle #Space @Hackaday

Hackaday & Hackaday.io feature user Lance’s project to signal if the International Space Station is overhead.

The International Space Station (ISS) has been up and running since 2000. Since that time, we have always had humans living in space. (Pretty Awesome!)

Making around 15 passes per day, this device combines 3D printing, coding, and soldering to notify you via blinking and IFTTT notification if its arrival.

This project combined a number of different material including 3D printed parts, small circuit boards, solar panels, the Particle IO, a webhook, ISS Open Notify, and IFTTT.

A 3D printed models was modified from one  on Thingiverse [ISS Model – https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:992074] to fit the small baby solar panels used later along with arms to hold it and a box to hold the electronics.

A number of Adafruit parts are used:

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.
