You can clue into your daily step count with the CLUE board! Pair it with a wearable case and you have a DIY step counter. A lot of step counters require an app to see your data, but with this project you can see your daily steps without any fears about your data security.
The CLUE’s on-board accelerometer has a built-in pedometer. With the CircuitPython CLUE and LSM6DS33 libraries, you can access the pedometer to count your steps with just a few lines of code.
This guide is a great intro to wearables with sensors. It requires no soldering and once the code is running on your CLUE you can immediately begin counting your steps.
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.
