Creative types Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken have come up with an awesome new way to display your iPad: a Lego Apple Macintosh.
We recreated a design classic with a modern twist. (Be sure to check out the stop motion film below). This project is testament to how a brand can sometimes move in a full circle. We’re both big fans of LEGO, which we used to recreated a scale model of the 1984 classic, Apple Macintosh. Then with a few simple adjustments to the design, we were able to incorporate the Apple iPad into the design. The result; a super cool looking place to dock the iPad, read the newspaper, or watch a film.
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.
