I2C Scanning with Adafruit.io WipperSnapper #NoCode #IoT
We’re working on adding support for the I2C protocol to Adafruit.io WipperSnapper so you can use WipperSnapper to send data from your favorite I2C sensors to the internet, without writing a single line of code.
This video shows off the first step of I2C support, which is scanning for connected I2C devices over the I2C bus (an I2C scan…over WiFi!). This functionality will be retained when we launch WipperSnapper’s I2C component, so you can easily query which sensors are plugged into your board.
What is WipperSnapper? Wippersnapper is Adafruit’s no-code IoT interface for Adafruit.IO – it lets you turn any WiFi-capable board into an IoT device without any programming. Get started with WipperSnapper by visiting http://io.adafruit.com/wippersnapper
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.
