When I first started this job, I never thought I’d be linking to the MTV Style blog, but… here we are. From MTV Style:
You may know Asher Levine for creating those to-die-for leather pieces for Lady Gaga (um, oversized motorcycle jacket anyone?), but the menswear designer has come a long way since his big 2010 debut. We stopped by his fall 2012 presentation, and we were immediately engulfed into his dimly-lit, post apocalyptic world filled with military-style jumpsuits, light-up helmets, and futuristic sunglasses. He carried over some of the alien-esque accents from last season (think: rubber tentacles and claws), but what mostly caught our eye were the glowing MakerBot printers busily working in the back of the room.
Aside from a typo where they refer to the MakerBot as open-source software, this is a really neat article, with gushing praise for the coolness of the Replicator.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
