ON a rainy April morning in what looked more like a makeshift office than an art studio, Cory Arcangel was deciding what drawings to produce for his survey show “Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools,” which opens Thursday at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Of two possible contenders, one would present the lyrics of the Miley Cyrus song “Party in the U.S.A.” in playful, loopy lettering; the other would be an intricately rendered tree. Both images would feature delicate lines laid down by a steady hand, though not Mr. Arcangel’s: the drawings would in fact be the product of a 1990s pen plotter machine, until recently defunct, which Mr. Arcangel had rerigged and reprogrammed.
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.
