Is this possibly the coolest LED project in art history? That’s what it felt like when I worked on a further development of the Kung Fu weapon idea. Two weeks ago we came together in a London studio and installed the elegant new CLS and a time slice rig of 50 Olympus Pen cameras. I designed a new LED weapon inspired by the car’s head lights and two professional Wushu artists performed in the space to create the dynamic 3D light sculptures you can see in the image above. Have a look at the gallery of still images and the film about the project on mercedes-benz.tv.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
