Currently a pre-production release, the features of the digital prayer beads include:
- Rosary recitation, with additional chaplets coming soon
- Accessibility for the deaf / blind
- Release under a FOSS/H license in the hopes of spurring development of Catholic software and hardware projects, and other edifying endeavors. In addition to the project serving as a simple introduction to the Arduino, the techniques can be adapted easily to other variants of prayer on beads such as malas and zikr.
The project is available on GitHub at https://github.com/Gaffney-Labs/prayerbits
