Michael Allison sends us on an ecstatic journey to explore ourselves and the tech that we surround those selves with –
Some of us now live in a world where the social and personal role of computation is playing an inextricable part in our lives. Computation is a window, a portal through which we see information, see entertainment, do our work and experience each other. Computers now create amazingly immersive screen-based experiences–I almost forget about the hardware entirely. That, however, is the root of my inquiry: what does it mean for me to spend so much time with this device what is my relationship to it?
In a time where experiences are created to be shared in bite-sized pieces to millions, Ecstatic Computation celebrates the intimacy and immersion of a performance crafted just for one.
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.
