Get Scanned at Coney Island Scan-A-Rama #MakerFaire
It was great to catch up with Fred Kahl, who’s representing The Great Fredini’s Coney Island Scan-A-Rama at World Maker Faire New York this year. They’re scanning and printing 3D portraits using a Kinect and MakerBot Replicator.
Adafruit is covering World Maker Faire New York 2013, September 21 and 22 at the New York Hall of Science!

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.
