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.

I’ll hang on to my Canon 45 TS-E for a while yet … but fun project, and doing this is SW really just doesn’t come close to the real thing. I picked this lens up ages back moving from large format, and still really miss portraits on 4×5″ film with a good lens. Be interesting to try my hand at the same effect since it’s been years that the TS-E (and everything else!) has been gathering dust.
A neat project. But it is funny to see everyone using lens tilt (there is no shift here) as a gimmick to throw things out of focus. Theodor Scheimpflug must be turning in his grave.
