How cool is this? Would you drive around in a wooden Beetle? Via Technabob.
This awesome Volkwagen Beetle is made of wood so you can bet it takes a lot of wood cleaner instead of a good waxing. It was made by Momir Bojic, from Bosnia. He doesn’t have to worry about rust so much as termites.
Momir used 50,000 pieces of sculpted oak to make the shell of this car, which covers both the exterior and interior. That wood doesn’t cover the headlights or taillights, so it’s street-legal. Getting into an accident and hitting this car would be like hitting a tree. I’m not sure if that is better or worse, but the splinters are a real killer.
Obviously Momir varnished the whole thing and even made himself a matching hat to wear while driving the car. Pretty cool.
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.
