I’m not sure why, but I think this film is perfect viewing for this Independence Day weekend. Lots of useful info too!

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. Ah the good old days πŸ˜‰

    No seat belts, air bags, bicycle helmets or safety glasses.

    Hard to believe that they didn’t use safety glasses isn’t it. Times have certainly changed.

  2. Mmm… I can almost smell the cutting oil from here! πŸ™‚

    I have both a lathe and a mill – under no circumstances would I run either without glasses: those machines throw stuff constantly! More than once I’ve had a hot chip bounce off of the glasses – had I not been wearing them, it would have gone into my eye. 8-o

    Also – if you have the bad luck to have a machine with that "rocker" style tool post, do yourself a favor and get a quick change one, they are much nicer to work with.
