Smokescreen is an open source application written in Processing for generating text that is unrecognizable for the most common Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. The application generates random “pixels” overlaid text, confusing the software but not the human readers.
…in other words, randomly generated pixels are not going to prevent your boyfriend/girlfriend/cat/dog/significant other from reading the rant you’ve foolishly left open on your screen, but if someone is scanning your e-mails externally, you can use this to block them.
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.
