Track Your Pet With a GPS Pet Collar #WearableWednesday
Wearables are for pets too! Instructables user drjhxie built a GPS collar for their cat to check out what he got up to while outside and shared the build:
If you have an outdoor cat or dog, you’ve probably wondered where it goes during the day. Do they hang around outside the house or go on long adventures exploring the neighborhood? To keep an eye on my cat, I made a GPS cat-tracking collar that would log his location during the day, then let me send the data to a computer!
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.
