swiss artists taiyo onorato and nico krebs have gone back to the stone ages in their ‘camera collection’ – handcrafting a variety of different photographic devices using shells from turtles, armadillos and horns. re-fashioned in a flinstones-esque style, the cameras highlight the duo’s facination for the history of photography and nature of the medium. the concept is part of a two-part series which includes ‘as long as it photographs it must be a camera’, a printed publication with images taken using the modified electronics.
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.
