Time travel Tuesday #timetravel a look forward at the Adafruit, maker, science, technology and engineering world

2025 – The NYU BFA program starts feeding directly into Adafruit’s manufacturing department.
So you went $300,000 into debt to get your film/creative writing/musical theatre degree? Why not put it to good use in Adafruit’s manufacturing department! Learn how to solder all while slowly chipping away at those student loans.
2032 – Becky Stern becomes the first person to receive a hair transplant made of neopixel strips.
Becomes hands down winner of “World’s Shinest Hair”.
2046 – Disney makes Dune: The animated musical for kids starring Adabot!
The film opens to rave reviews- Frank Herbert fans are finally satisfied with a movie version of the novel.
2057 – Adafruit releases AdaFruit – an new strain of starfruit that enables humans to solder electronic components to their skin upon consumption.
It’s still in it’s testing stages but we tried it ourselves and it doesn’t hurt that much.
2059 – Scientists discover that what everyone thought was pink is actually blue; Limor invents time travel so she can re-dye her hair.
Time travel has other uses too, I guess.
2500 – Phil and Limor wake up from their cryogenically frozen state; See Dune for kids 17 and decide to freeze themselves again.
It wasn’t as good as the first 16.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
