Raspberry Pi Pocket Data Transferer @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
When you don’t have that exact thing you’re looking for, make it. Is there a sort of book you’ve always wanted to read, but nobody’s written it? Write it. Is there a sort of dance track that you want to bob your head to, but nobody’s laid down the oontz oontz? Make the track. And if you don’t have ready access to a data transfer tool, just make it. The Pocket Ape teamfrom Sambalpur, India, did just that. Here’s more from hackster.io:
I started to develop this project when I was in my 11th grade, as being from a very small town of India (Sambalpur my town) it was hard to gather sufficient information required to build an electronic device and how to program it. Although the internet helped a lot and somehow I was able to build a very low-quality prototype. I and my team thought to make a fully working MVP(Minimum Viable Product) of our Idea and then run a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo but our country was unlisted from Indiegogo’s website, and honestly, we were also not capable enough to build our own ARM board for Pocket_Data_Transferer.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
