As long time readers will know, we (Windell Oskay and Lenore Edman) started Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories as a way to organize our hobby projects, way back in 2006.
I’m pleased to announce that as of today, both of us are full time evil mad scientists, working here on the blog and at our web store Evil Mad Science, which has grown from our blog projects. There’s lots of awesome, yet to come.
Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories is one of our favorite open-source hardware companies, congrats folks!
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.
