NASA’s Advanced Supercomputing Division showed our tour group the hyperwall-2 with its quarter-billion pixel display measuring 23 x 10 feet. It’s the world’s highest-resolution scientific visualization environment.
It’s connected to 2.9 petaflops of compute via 65 miles of cabling (the world’s largest InfiniBand network).
Here’s a video I took of it in action. I used a 16mm lens on the Mark II to take the wide-angle perspective.
Here you see surface current speeds from a 3D ocean state model, with lateral storm waves and fluttering pockets of surface gravity waves.
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.
