Quotes! Who doesn’t love good quotes? But who’s to decide which quotes are “good”? Well, you are, of course!
Now, you can create your own quote board and supply the quotes for it yourself! No need to rely on a website and some other person’s curatorial tastes.
With this project, you’ll create a custom quote feed right on Adafruit IO, then code your CircuitPython-powered WiFi RGB LED matrix to display your quotes in random order.
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.
