Designed by German artist Lorenz Potthast, the Decelerator Helmet, an interactive wearable, falls into the camp of the Slow Movement. As a critical response to our cultural obsession with speed, the Decelerator Helmet alters the wearers perception of the world by visually slowing down reality in real time. The helmet decouples the user’s perception from natural timing, allowing the user to experience time differently and the world in slow motion. Using a small, handheld controller, the user is given ultimate control of the experience by being able to slow down or speed up the elapsing of time.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
