InqSpeedRacer: Hot Wheel Speed Trap @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
A true Hot Wheels play day involves what seems like Kids would race their little die-cast cars as fast as they could. And now you can add a speed trap. Hot Wheels Here’s more via hackster.io:
InqSpeedRacer is a web-based electronic speed-trap for HotWheels®. The project was created for an 8th Grade Science class studying Physics of Motion topics. It is also a demonstrator of creating an InqPortal server that not only serves multiple clients, but the clients can connect to multiple servers. This can be easily used as a template for Home Automation. Creating multiple kinds of InqPortal “servers” that use sensors, relays and/or actuators to sense and control the environment. A client dashboard can be created to connect to all servers and monitor and control all servers.

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.
