Time travel Tuesday #timetravel a look back at the Adafruit, maker, science, technology and engineering world
Road? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. – Dr. Emmett Brown.
Here’s a look back at the maker world and beyond!
In 1897, Ferdinand Braun published a paper on a Braun Tube, the first known version of a cathode-ray tube. He first developed it as a means of understanding time-dependence of alternating currents. The Braun Tube evolved into the handy-dandy oscilloscope, used by makers everywhere!
Happy 204th Birthday, Charles Darwin. It’s not widely known, but the author of On the Origin of Species sat on his theory of natural selection for over two decades, worrying about persecution, before news of an imminent and very similar publication pushed him to publish.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
