Hector Martin (aka Marcan) is a busy guy. Not long after winning the Adafruit OpenKinect Bounty back in November, he released another awesome project: OpenLase — an open laser graphics framework. Here he is at 27C3, giving one of the best lightning talks I’ve ever seen. It starts out good, and then it just gets better!
Happy New Year!
That infectious song at the end is “Bad Apple” by Masayoshi Minoshima & Nomico. You’re welcome. 🙂
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
