As with the original PyGamer Thermal Camera, this portable thermal camera project combines an AMG8833 IR Thermal Camera FeatherWing with a PyGamer. The upgraded CircuitPython code used in this version increases the camera resolution from 64 pixels (8 x 8) to 225 pixels (15 x 15) and deepens the color depth from 8 colors to 100 colors, all without hardware modifications.
The new code improves the camera’s ability to visualize thermal images to help discern heating and air conditioning ventilation issues, to evaluate the quality of your home’s insulation, and to avoid the sleeping cat when heading to the kitchen in the middle of the night.
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.
