The Bob Moog Foundation has released 15 new schematics from its vast archives of hardware, conceptual drawings, photographs, vintage catalogs, design schematics and more. The release is the second of its kind, following 20 schematics shared on the Foundation’s eighth anniversary, August 21, 2014. The Foundation tells us that their archival mission is to preserve the past to inspire the future. To that end, they say that work on the expansive collection is implemented with the purpose of sharing the historical and technical information contained therein through collaboration on museum exhibits and online releases.
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.
