prepping images for an iot rgb matrix project
i'm working on a big rgb matrix project using the espn API to get data for tracking various sports teams. since it's an rgb matrix it makes sense to display the team logos. however, there are a lot of teams across all of the leagues and images for rgb matrices have to be just so. this part of the project was really intimidating.
however, as luck would have it, the espn API includes links to excellent .PNG image files for each team. i wrote a python script that creates folders on your computer for each set of images, downloads the images, names them to match the team abbreviation in the API, resizes them, adds gamma correction from the image correction for led matrices guide, spits out a properly formatted bitmap file and deletes the original .PNG image

Testing an eTape with my sump pump
Now that the awesome eTape liquid level sensor works with Adafruit IO No-Code devices, I figured this would be a good way to add a really accurate sensor to my house's sump pump to track the water level in the tank. I used a simple hose clamp to go through the 3d print and hold it in place on the main sump pump pipe. Then I can slide the device down so it rests on the bottom of the sump pump tank.
Next step is to connect this up and do some tests with Adafruit IO. I think I am going to use the FunHouse board with this.
