What happens when the digital meets the physical world? AMUSEMENT takes you on a behind the scenes tour of the objects that will impact the future – in a very “Materialistic” issue.
AMUSEMENT prefers to warn you: the digital world is moving into its V.3 and is about to take on the physical world. Smart and communicating objects, new interfaces, upcoming materials, fab labs, 3D printing, the Internet of things, DIY culture, nanotechnologies… But once 0′s and 1′s have invaded the real world, what consequences should we expect?
This issue offers you a glimpse of what’s to come, with a strong point of view: an overload of interviews and encounters with the ones who will be designing the physical world of the next 20 years.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
