In this case, Sarah Blitzer, an M.Arch + M.S. Historic Preservation student at the University of Pennsylvania, reached out to me to suggest I make sure to check out 3D-DREAMING, which is a visual-centric blog of the latest things happening in architecture and structural design (a few of the 3D printed items in the grid have already shown up here for #3dthursday in the past). I think this is a great lead to round out the architecture-related books I have been sharing here recently. Fantastic resource, thanks for the tip, Sarah! If any of you have other tips for me to check out, send them my way!
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.
