Dezeen has a story on “Waste House,” which is the first permanent house made entirely of rubbish in the UK:
Situated on the University of Brighton‘s campus in the English seaside town, the Waste House was designed by BBM director Duncan Baker-Brown together with undergraduate students.
It was constructed by apprentices from social housing maintenance provider Mears, as well as volunteers and students from City College Brighton & Hove.
The architects claim that the Waste House is the UK’s first permanent building constructed from rubbish and Baker-Brown, who is a senior lecturer at the university, said the facility is intended to demonstrate appropriate applications for unheralded materials.
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.
