With this project, you will always know what event you have up next. The eInk Breakout will let you know what’s next on your schedule and if you lose power to your Raspberry Pi or other single board computer, you will still be able to see what the next item is because the ePaper display still shows the last thing written to it!
Using Python, this project queries the Google Calendar site API to find out the what is next on your schedule and displays it. This is a great project that you can have sitting on your desk.
The project works by reading the events on your Google Calendar and then sorts what you have coming up and displays the upcoming item as well as the item after that. You can also scroll through events using the buttons.

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.
