Over on the CheerLights Discord server, “marksy” shared a neat CheerLights project using the M5StickC PLUS device. This project periodically goes to the CheerLights ThingSpeak channel to get the latest CheerLights color and display the color on the M5StickC integrated LCD display. Imagine if they add an RGB LED to the next generation board!?
The CheerLights client code for the M5StickC is available on GitHub.
The M5StickC PLUS ESP32-PICO Mini IoT Development Kit is a great device to get started with IoT and also great for building anything you can think of. The tiny, tiny formfactor of the M5StickC should inspire some new project ideas for you. You can use what you know with the Arduino Development Platform or use Development Platform UIFlow and MicroPython.
Here’s what you get built into the M5StickC PLUS:
- BLE 4.2
- Six-axis IMU
- Red LED
- IR transmitter
- Passive Buzzer
- Lipo Battery
- Extendable Socket
For those getting started with the M5StickC, check out this video from Hackster. It’s a great introduction and helped me get going with this plucky device.
Thanks for sharing your project on the #projects channel on the CheerLights Discord server.
