Birthday Text Reminder @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberyPi
Cute project for those of us challenged by remembering important dates, from onehourcleaner up on Instructables.
I’m not great at remembering birthdays of friends and family. No matter how many ways I’ve tried… paper calendars (too manual), spreadsheets (not automated), social media (too…social media), I always end up forgetting to let the person I care about know that I also care about the day they came into the world.
Solution: get one of the 5 RaspberryPis I have doing various jobs to pick up my slack and send me a text the morning of my loved one’s birthday. Simple.
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!
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.
