When you walk into a shop to buy a TV you are surrounded by shiny, plastic new products which you spend thousands on in a blink of an eye. But do you ever stop to realise what made your new set possible? In order to find out the lengths of detail that go into engineering a modern LCD TV, Humans Invent were given exclusive access of Sharp’sLCD Centre of Excellence in Barcelona, set up last year in order to make televisions specifically for a European audience. Humans Invent travelled to Spain to find out what goes on inside the research facility.
Xavier Ribera, Engineering General Manager at Sharp Electronic Europe says, “We follow the journey from the beginning concept and design through the testing and final stretch.”
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.
