Track stocks on an ePaper display #MagTag #CircuitPython @MarioCruz
The MagTag Stock Tracker / Ticker is an Adafruit MagTag Stock Tracker with a gorgeous ePaper / eInk display. It uses WiFi onboard to get the latest stock information for display. Magnetic feel allow it to be attached to a fridge or other surface.
It is programmed in CircuitPython and it’s very easy to change what to display by editing a text file, no programming.
It saves battery and keeps the previous stock price saved before sleeping. Also, it includes logic for recovery from a reboot or dead battery and checks the battery and warns when a battery is low from an audible tone.

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.
