Bluetooth SnekTek Board

At the risk of shameless self-promotion, I'm having a Black Friday sale on my MicroPython board. Also looking for some feedback from the community if anyone tries it. It's geared towards people who'd rather keep their hands clean and avoid soldering but still get access to cool sensors. SnekTek.com ...

Re: Project Help Pool Motor

Neat idea. This type of application is what my MicroPython powered product is supposed to be good for, too bad we don't have a RTD (temperature sensor) module yet.

Re: A power meter - using the Pyboard as a measuring instrument

Cool project. I really like the I, V graph display, gives you more detail than just a power factor number. For making cutouts in plastic project boxes, I have a small chinese CNC mill that does a great job. In my experience it's almost impossible to make a good looking box cutout by hand. Does that ...

Re: Custom micropython board with bluetooth

It looks neat and exceptionally beginner friendly, and the website is good once you've actually found it ;) Surely the forthcoming 2input unit should be an observer not an actor?? My one question is over the use of bluetooth - I assume this is correct given the comments above and the reference on t...

Re: Custom micropython board with bluetooth

Hi Pythoncoder.

That's not our domain, we have terrible SEO apparently and someone's DNS entries are pointed at our server.

Try https://snektek.com
I'd be interested to hear what you think.

Custom micropython board with bluetooth

Hello, just wanted to share my MicroPython project. This custom board is a central part of a product a buddy and I developed. The board connects over BLE to other similar boards which contain sensors or outputs of various types. Those sensors or outputs are controlled in MicroPython using an API. It...

Re: Windows Creator update causing REPL issues and delay in showing drive

These problems are common across all three of my pyboards (v1.0, V1.0 LITE and v1.1)[/quote] Thanks for confirming this. It's been driving me a bit crazy. I suspect it is caused by the new windows feature of supp...
