“Ask an engineer” is TONIGHT 10pm ET – ROBOT GIVEAWAY!
Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. MOSnet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 10pm. Eastern time, April 17th. Tonight, Saturday 4/17/2010 – 10pm ET – “Ask an Engineer” – Adafruit’s weekly LIVE video chat! What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or an seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer you engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week. To see previous chat event videos, please visit the forums.
Create is an affordable mobile robot platform for educators, students and developers – use it to experiment, learn and play! Here’s just the beginning of the fun you can have with Create…
-Learn the fundamentals of robotics, computer science and engineering
-Program behaviors, sounds and movements
-Attach sensors, electronics, cameras, grippers and more
Create is preassembled and ready to use right out of the box. Beginners can observe the robot’s behavior in any of the 10 demonstration modes or program the robot by downloading scripts with any basic terminal program. Advanced users can write custom software using a variety of methods that take advantage of the robot’s “streaming sensor data” mode for more control of the robot. And highly advanced users can write programs for completely autonomous behavior.
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
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.
