In the NAU7802 Food Scale Learn Guide, you can build a food scale using CircuitPython, a NAU7802 STEMMA board and a strain gauge. In this guide, you’ll take that project and connect it to Microsoft Azure to log the weight measurements over time. Additionally, you’ll setup a text alert when it looks like you need to refill the food container.
This project will show you how to take your food scale project further and connect it to the internet for long term tracking.
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.
