I had the opportunity to work with Noe Ruiz from Adafruit to write some CircuitPython code for the PyPortal Titano Weather Station. The PyPortal boards have a SAMD51 along with an ESP32 co-processor, which allows them to connect to Wi-Fi and run CircuitPython.
This project displays a live feed of the current weather for your location from OpenWeatherMap along with the date, time and any holidays that you want to program in. You can also use it for daily and weekly alarm reminders. It’s basically a retro themed IoT personal assistant.
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.
