Cosmic Ray Detector in the Adafruit Google+ Community (video)
Earlier this week, a curious video was shared in the Adafruit Google+ Community by Robert Hart featuring an intriguing flicker of lights. Following Robert’s link, it was an 81 Pixel Hodoscope, an instrument for detecting cosmic rays (muons)!
Here’s a video (on YouTube, on Vimeo) discovering Robert’s project at the Adafruit Google+ Community (over 30,000 members!) — all filled with exciting projects appearing there every single day. We’re looking forward to seeing what’s next, join up now!
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.
