TurtleSense disguises a sensor package in the form of a giant egg head
Researchers have hidden an accelerometer in a fake turtle egg [a ping pong ball] To send data via SMS. With this data, people will be able to understand more about the nesting/hatching process and deploy effective protection for turtles. – Adafruit learning system
No-code IoT pool monitor
You can create your own IoT Pool Monitor (no code!) using Adafruit IO and WipperSnapper. This can help you keep track of water temperatures by logging and plotting the data on the dashboard! All electronics are housed in an airtight enclosure that is also waterproof. – Adafruit learning system
Pico W HTTP Server with CircuitPython
Set up an HTTP (web) server with Pico W running CircuitPython. HTTP servers are handy for creating custom web interfaces for monitoring and controlling IoT projects. – Adafruit learning system
BLE soil sensor
B-Parset is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) open source soil moisture and ambient temperature/humidity/light sensor. – github
An open source device to locally control your smart home. While this is a purchasable project, a technical overview of the build history is useful for anyone looking to build a smart board. – Hackaday.io
daily home lighting
The light messed with Tyler’s head, so they built a way to automatically adjust the lighting in their home based on the daily lighting. This is a self-hosted solution, replacing something that will be offered commercially by a vendor like Philips. – tylercipriani.com
Self-sustaining solar/wind IoT system
Research and attempts to use a renewable energy source (solar or wind) to operate a sensor node. – Hackster.io
Make noise with the Adafruit IO WipperSnapper!
You can now connect analog output components such as piezo buzzers and dimmable LEDs to a development board running Adafruit’s no-code IoT software, WipperSnapper. We’ve made it incredibly easy to configure a PWM output component on a development board and start using it right away. – Adafruit Blog
The HTTP crash course that no one asked for
A Quick Tour of HTTP with Rust! – Quick lime
SpaceX is now announcing the Swarm’s IoT satellite connectivity on its Starlink network
SpaceX has bought satellite data startup Swarm, in a rare acquisition by space company Elon Musk more than a year ago. SpaceX is now advertising the Swarm satellite connection for the Internet of Things on its Starlink website, with IoT service for $5 per month. – Adafruit Blog
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start crafting right away! Adafruit’s Circuit is filled with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads, and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes using Drag-and-drop MakeCode programming websiteLearn Computer Science with the CS Discoveries class on code.org, go to Circle To learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Quick Playground It is the latest and best circuit playground board, with CircuitPython, MakeCode and Arduino support. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, a tiny speaker, an InfraRed receiver and transmitter, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and plenty of sensors: capacitive touch, infrared proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. The vast world of electronics and coding awaits you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
