Getting a message on a screen is great, but getting them on a cube is BETTER. Build an adorable message cube to accompany you on life’s adventures and deliver words from the internet via AdafruitIO!
This cube is powered by CircuitPython on a fancy ESP32-S3 QT Py! It has a LIS3DH accelerometer sensor board attached via a STEMMA QT connector, which means it’s easy to change the sensor anytime you need new cube superpowers. The QT Py BFF charger add-on makes this cube rechargeable via the USB-C port of the QT Py.
