The Beautiful Imagery of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s #Dune
Frank Herbert’s Dune is a sweeping epic filled with alien worlds and beings. Not only are the landscapes rich, so are the characters and costumes and politics. The story has been adapted for the screen a few times, but Alejandro Jodorowsky’s unique vision never made it to completion. His take was surreal. He wanted viewers to feel as though they were tripping without any drugs. Concept art showcased by BoingBoing shows off Jodorowsky’s plan, and so does the new documentary titled Jodorowsky’s Dune.
Adafruit is focusing its Halloween celebration and plans around Dune this year, so it’s only appropriate to give this documentary attention. You’ll be intrigued by Jodorowsky’s imagination and perhaps it will inspire you to come up with a new Dune costume!
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.
