With the power of the MagTag's ESP32-S2 WiFi enabled processor, we can stream in a continuously updating list of quotes from Adafruit's quotes server. Or, go a bit more to the contemplative/NSFW side with the popular Reddit r/Showerthoughts display!

By using the built-in deep sleep mode, a battery-powered MagTag can run for days or weeks on a single charge, just waking up every hour to grab a new quote. You can get about 100 refreshes on a battery, so space em out however you like.
