Three fun, sensor-packed projects to try on your CLUE! #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #CircuitPython @Adafruit
The Adafruit CLUE is great little board, chock-full of sensors, buttons and an excellent little display. The project possibilities are endless! So, where to begin? We’ve created three fun demos to get you started. Check them out!
Next up is a customisable temperature and humidity monitor with an optional audible alarm. It uses the temperature and humidity sensors, and the display. Within the code, you can set the desired temperature and humidity ranges. Then, when the temperature or humidity goes below the range, the text turns blue, and when they are above the range, the text turns red. If the optional audible alarm is enabled, it will go off when the values are outside the range on either end.
Finally, we have a height calculator. It uses the barometric pressure sensor to calculate the altitude, and then uses some simple math to allow you to calculate the height of an object. Place the CLUE at the base of the object you wish to measure, and press button A to zero it. Then lift the CLUE to the top of the object to see the height!
Keep an eye out for more demos coming soon!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
