NEW GUIDE: Purple Air AQI Display @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
This brand new Learn Guide, Purple Air AQI Display will show you how to build a large LED matrix display to see your Air Quality Index and description at a glance.
The quality of the air we breathe can be very important, particularly right now with recent wildfires on the west coast of the US.
This project shows how to display the Air Quality Index (AQI) of a based on the Purple Air real-time monitoring community’s outdoor sensors sensor right on your own LED Matrix display.
Your readings will be updated automatically over WiFi, and you can plug in the sensor ID of any Purple Air sensor in the world!
We’ll show you how to build this project with either the Matrix Portal or a Metro M4 Express AirLift with RGB Matrix shield.
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.
