1,400 hand-blown glass spheres swirl into the playful shape of a gust of snow, a joyful interpretation of the sublime alpine hinterland of the InterContinental Hotel. This dynamic structure is animated by pairs of LED’s – one white, one blue – that illuminate each globe, and glisten along the chandelier’s surface. The installation stands at 28 metres long – a fittingly monumental centrepiece for the luxurious setting – and interacts with the snow-capped mountains through the towering windows that line the room.
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.
