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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. If you’re beaming it directly into your retina, how can that not be harmful?

  2. James, you’ll find that the light used by the projector is really dim compared to a standard projector. Google Glass probably uses a small projector module from Microvision or a similar company. While it is directed straight to your eye, the amount of light you get is ultimately going to be similar to looking into a LCD, or maybe even less light than that.

    What I’m more worried about with Google Glass is the focusing problem: unless they’re being really smart about their optics, the Google Glass image will only resolve when your eye is at a particular focus. Anyone who has used a wearable display for a decent length of time can tell you this gets annoying pretty quickly….

    Actually, instead of making my own terrible summary of the problem, I’ll just point you to this awesome article: http://spectrum.ieee.org/geek-life/profiles/steve-mann-my-augmediated-life . About halfway through (right after the HDR youtube video) is where I’m pulling most of my knowledge of Google Glass’s issues from.
