A few of the Raspberry Pi Creative Technologists attended the Art Hackathon in Greenwich on 16th-17th May and got together with some others to create a lovely art project. The project takes a Twitter feed, analyses the tweets for keywords and assigns emotions to them. The amount of each emotion is then rendered on a web page. Wavy strips of clear plastic were then mounted on top of the screen (an HDMIPi) to give the rendering a 3D ‘feel’. Audio was also keyed to the emotional readings and the volume of different sound tracks altered according to how much a particular emotion was being expressed through Twitter.
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.
