If you haven’t seen them before (we have shared them occasionally as well) check out the PCB Creations of Steven Rodrig. Via SeeedStudio.
Steven Rodrig’s vision of the printed circuit board was one of an organic living functioning system compacted into a concise physical universe. Each PCB had a predetermined set of commands meant to perform a specific unction. Because technology is evolving at a rapid rate, new generations of PCBs are created from one moment to the next leaving previous PCB designs outdated. Rather than ending up in a mound of obsolete waste destined to rot in time, there is a recycled life waiting to take on a new organic form. Though not originally meant to be part of a sculpture, the PCB adds a dimension of mechanical beauty unlike any other.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
