Open(Art) is a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. Over the past year, four Eyebeam Fellows have been working on projects that address issues of innovation, transparency, and utility within the context of the Internet.
Projects include: Meemoo by Forrest Oliphant– a browser-based app “hacker” that allows for intuitive creation and re-mixing of apps, sounds, and graphics
Pixel Shaders by Toby Schachman– an interactive book, platform, and community centered around harnessing the graphics processing unit (GPU) for artistic purposes
The Open(Art) Fellows will lead free workshops on July 13, with demonstrations of their projects, creative applications of the platforms, and (most importantly) a PIZZA PARTY. Register now!
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.
