What if we could peel back the layers of the cities we live in? Imagine if you could look up any address in New York and be able to see what was there 10, 50, 100, or even 350 years ago. That’s the idea behind the NYC Space/Time Directory, the newest project of New York Public Library Labs.
“The NYC Space/Time Directory will aggregate data from thousands of historical maps and offer it freely online through a searchable, map interface,” says Ben Vershbow, the director of NYPL Labs. “Users will be able to feed it old addresses and get accurate results, and to look up historical locations, events, and people.”
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.
