Our Maker Faire project for 2012, part of the Young Makers Program, is “The Viper” — a motion controlled flight simulator inspired by the ship of the same name from the SyFy Channel’s TV Series Battlestar Galactica. I just bought some great badges from you for the flightsuits for my son’s latest invention. Thanks for having great tech goodies and an inspiring collection of engineering quotes. If you’d like to see what 5 high school kids can do with some Arduinos, open source Flight gear software, an airplane fuselage, welded steel, and some electric motors, check out their project for the Bay Area Maker Faire: the VIPER flight simulator. Truly amazing! www.the-viper.org Cheers–a happy customer
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.
