Flying remote controlled fish – Air swimmers, good for hacking!


Flying remote controlled fish – Air swimmers! We can’t wait to see what the DIY Drones folks do with these!


Reminds us of the Festo Bionic Network….


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.

  1. This is so much like the flying penguin in William Gibson’s Zero History, it’s scary.

  2. @Johngineer:

    That’s because Gibson was, in fact, inspired by the Festo Bionic Network, and directly referenced the Air Penguin in his book.

  3. One of the things I find most impressive about these is that the retail price is $40. It would be so easy for them to charge a lot more the way toys are priced.

  4. Johngineer, the items in the second video are the direct inspiration for the penguin and the manta ray in Zero History. Gibson has spoken and written about it.

  5. Thanks for the info guys!

  6. My favorite is still the Air Fish. http://vimeo.com/1968128
