Like a 21st century update to the infinity mirror, animation student Gregor Belibi Minya creates a neverending tunnel of repeating shapes and patterns by linking together 2,361 screenshots from his computer’s desktop. Inspired by the photocopied animation that is Alexander Stewart’s Errata, Minya made SCREENSHOT over the course of five days, lining up small small changes in window placement and desktop background to create the illusion of an endless, morphing hallway inside the screen. As an electronic musican under the name Digital Cosmic Disco, he also composed the laidback soundbed, which “helps the picture breathe for a union, a balance of [sound and image].”
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.
