New details about sunglass.io’s public release of their solid design collaboration, project management, and showcase platform via SolidSmack.
The 3D cloud collab fire keeps burnin’ hotter and today’s news is sure to stoke the flames. Sunglass.io started out as a simple way to share models online and was one of the first to bring in a WebGL-based, plugin-free approach to sharing CAD Data. They had a basic annotation tool at the time and a hint at an app ecosystem. After bagging 1.7 million in funding they introduced support for 45 3D file formats, VoIP support, cloud rendering and a public beta. Today, they’re breaking out of beta and deep into project collaboration with the claim of a “GitHub-like solution” for seamless collaboration and project management. Here’s a look.

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.
