Artist Jon Stam hacked a Viewfinder to make the image inside go from stereoscopic to digital:
The imaginary Museum consists of a digitally hacked View-Master and (RFID enabled) paper discs. Instead of stereoscopic sightseeing through diapositives with an original View-Master, these Imaginary Museum discs activate digital content from the web to be viewed though two high resolution micro screens inside the viewer. Each disc holds a collection of 7 meaningful digital things (still, moving, 2d, and 3d) curated by various artists and designers. To view a collection one must simply place a disc in the viewer and press lever down to change scene. An Imaginary Museum was developed for House for Contemporary Art Z33’s New Times New Heros presentation. It is produced on demand for exhibitions, events, and personal use.

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.
