You will use technology and creativity to boost your environment. With the tools from your box you develop an innovative prototype that can improve your daily life.
What’s in the Box?
The PlugnPlay toolbox is a box of input sensors, output modules, a processor (microcomputer) and electronic accessories.
An ENV-Hat (1) provides data capture of temperature, humidity, and magnetic field strength.
Finally, the light sensor (3) was developed by the Gluon coaches.
In addition, there is also a PIR hat (2) or human body induction sensor that detects the IR waves of the human body.
The M5-Stick is the central part of your prototype: the brain or the minicomputer. To make your prototype come to life, program the Stick. Then you connect an input sensor and an output module. The M5-Stick itself also has some nice features such as a microphone, gyroscope/accelerometer and buzzer. Connection is possible via Wifi, Bluetooth or USB port.
The box provides you with an LED strip (1).
A SERVO motor that can rotate 180° (2).
A relay module that can turn a device off and on (3).
With this tool we want to make input-output circuits really sexy. Are you curious about how a higher temperature can be converted into a red color? The projects you will find here serve as a warm-up for the development of your project.

#Weatherbuddy by Bart Stolle
Bart Stolle has a fascination for weather houses: an old form of technology that people used to have at home…
He developed his own ‘weather house’ using Gluon’s toolbox.
You can see this prototype in the photo above. It contains a barometer and temperature sensor that send a signal via the processor to the screen of the M5StickC+.
The man with the hat indicates that it is snowing. In sunshine you see a female with a dress come out. When it rains, a man with an umbrella appears.
