Who can forget the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster that was prompted due to the Tsunami initiated by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11th. Now to carry the investigation of the affected area it is obvious that human involvement would not be safe, for this very reason Toshiba has developed a quadruped robot that is capable of walking at the speed of 1km per hour and carrying put all the research needed. The robot runs on wireless radio operation has a camera and dosimeter for searching the uneven terrain. Weighing 65 kg and being battery operated, providing it a continuous 2 hours of walking makes it a perfect assistant for all the dirty work that is too dangerous for humans to embark on. The robot also has a small vehicle self-actuated robot on top of it for hard to reach places.
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.
