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!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
