Eavesdropping on people mentioning Raspberry Pi on Twitter yesterday, I came across Paul Rainer von Habsburg (@RainerVonHabs, whom I shall refer to hereafter as Paul RvH), who was talking about his new tattoo. Here it is, courtesy of Now or Never Tattoos and Body Works – the various Linux/Android logos are the work of @ECHO1RTH and the Raspberry Pi logo is by @Johnnylemonz. Paul Beech (Paul B for the purposes of this post), who designed our logo, is bounding around with joy at the news; he has never seen a piece of his artwork in tattoo form before, and Paul RvH’s new ankle decoration means Paul B now has something in common with Lucian Freud.
Paul RvH’s tattooed logo is new and hasn’t healed yet; note the glossiness. He will, I hope, share another picture when it’s finished healing.
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.
