Reach out beyond your desk - to the stars and beyond, with PyPortal! This ADABOX features a new, easy-to-use IoT device that allows you to customize and create your very own "Internet of Things" portal. We take CircuitPython to the max, pairing a SAMD51 chip with a 3.2" color TFT touchscreen and secure Wi-Fi co-processor.
With the open-source Python-powered PyPortal, you can fetch and display anything in the world: inspirational quotes, weather forecasts, your social media followers, cat photos, and more - over Wi-Fi with the latest technologies. Create little pocket universes of joy that connect to something good. You can even rotate it 90 degrees, now it's a web-connected conference badge - and take #badgelife to the next level!
Thanks to the generous sponsorship and support from Analog Devices and Digi-Key, we've even included a fancy precision temperature sensor! Each PyPortal comes with an ADT7410 sensor built right in, so you can display the local temperature or use the PyPortal as a remote temperature logger and sensor that uploads data to our free adafruit.io IoT service.
Adafruit PyPortal - CircuitPython powered IoT Portal
The PyPortal uses an ATMEL (Microchip) ATSAMD51J20, and an Espressif ESP32 Wi-Fi coprocessor with TLS/SSL support built-in.
PyPortal has a 3.2″ 320 x 240 color TFT with resistive touch screen. PyPortal includes: speaker, light sensor, temperature sensor, NeoPixel, microSD card slot, 8MB flash, plug-in ports for I2C and 2 analog/digital pins.
3D files are available for custom enclosures and lanyard fastening. A number of free cases are available for 3D printing.
PyPortal is Open-source hardware, and it uses Open-Source software: both CircuitPython and Arduino. The device shows up as a USB drive and the code (Python) can be edited in any IDE, text editor, etc. The easiest code editing technique for microcontrollers.
Desktop Enclosure Kit
And now that you've made a cool internet-connected project with the Adafruit PyPortal, you will want to show it off. Instead of having it lie on a table or taped to a box, try this gracious and elegant enclosure.
Prevent inter-dimensional monsters and gremlins, or accidentally-spilled coffee from wrecking your IoT project with the PyPortal Enclosure Kit! Expertly crafted and laser-cut, this enclosure will give your PyPortal a minimalist and elegant look.
Laser cut acrylic with hardware.
Look in your coin jar and find 50 pennies (or similar sized coins) to roll up. Then, use it as a ballast for the PyPortal enclosure to keep it steady on your desk.
If you don't have US pennies, any similar sized coin or metal disc (like a large washer) will work just fine, just stuff 'em in there!
Two Meter Long 'Blinka Style' USB Cable
USB A to micro B cable for data and power. And look at that incredibly great color! Extra long cable, so you can place your PyPortal just about anywhere!
