From printed Aston Martins blown up in the James Bond film “Skyfall”, to personalized sex toys: 3D printing is demonstrating its influence, and making its way into your home for personal use.
Upon visiting Openhouse’s 3DEA Pop Up Store at the Eventi Hotel, we were taken with the evolving 3D printing technology and how it has been applied to fashion and design. Designers Aaron Trocola, Heidi Lee, Mary Huang, Pauline van Dongen, and Dirk van der Kooij showcased fashion and industrial design pieces that push the boundaries – creating custom items that are strikingly beautiful and unique.
We were inspired by the work on display and its significance to this advancing industry. We came up with a concept, called some friends, and pulled this shoot together.
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.
