This MagTag display project informs you of the currently playing Adafruit Livestream show, or lets you know when the next show starts! You can modify the project for your own recurring calendar events, too!
This project is a non-sync’d event reminder. Instead of connecting to a calendar system, a JSON file with event names, times and images lives on the MagTag. This is great for repeating events that don’t change week-by-week. The MagTag stays in deep-sleep mode between event updates so it runs for many weeks on a charge. You can have it beep the onboard speaker to remind you an event is starting, too!
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.
