Lady with Theremin

This is my favorite cover from the Popular Electronics magazine cover archive. As my friend says, “these are just ridiculous depictions of men providing for their wives by building transistor radios”


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  2. I had the chance to play a theremin and it’s soooo cool.
    Here’s a link with a DIY Theremin (it’s in spanish but schematics are schematics xD)

    Congrats for your website! I’ve found it really interesting.
