New Guide: Scan QR Codes with @adafruit #CircuitPython 7
Jeff is back with another guide for some new functionality in CircuitPython 7:
CircuitPython 7 adds the qrio module, which can decode QR codes from images grabbed with compatible cameras like the OV2640.
These demos are designed to work with the Espressif Kaluga development kit, which comes with a compatible camera, can connect via WiFi to Adafruit IO, and has plenty of RAM to store the images for analysis.
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.
