With the Internet of Memes, it’s possible for anyone to push funny pictures to the ePaper display on the desk of coworkers.
Mike writes to Adafruit:
Over the holidays, I rigged up a way to send memes to all of my co-workers, (and let them do the same) in the form of an Adafruit MagTag (ePaper dev board that we like to use for our developer training).
A Slack bot I wrote runs the whole thing, user can run the `publish <link-to-image>` command and the bot will push it out to all of the ePaper displays on the desks of every co-worker.
Device runs ESP-IDF on the ESP32-S2 that’s on the Adafruit MagTag board.
Our company is a device management platform, so I’m using the REST API via the SlackBot to distribute the meme.
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.
