CheerLights on the Adafruit MagTag

Our friends at Adafruit have created an awesome device called the MagTag. The Adafruit MagTag ‘combines the new ESP32-S2 wireless module and a 2.9″ grayscale E-Ink display to make a low-power IoT display that can show data on its screen even when power is removed.’

The MagTag also includes four NeoPixels on the top! So, you know where this is going… Adafruit created a demo to show the latest CheerLights color on the E-Ink display and change the colors of the NeoPixels.

You can try this demo out right now if you have a MarTag. Adafruit has posted the CheerLights code to GitHub using CircuitPython. The MagTag is really popular and often sells out on Adafruit’s store, so add your email to be notified when it’s back in stock.
