Check out this hilarious video from Laser Unicorns with Hackerman’s how to hack time tutorial. The video looks like something discovered in a time capsule from the 80’s and is loaded with vintage computers and retro tech. Hackerman’s guide is actually part of the promotional material for the recently released Kung Fury movie which is an homage to action/cult movies from the 80’s and 90’s. Both videos are a major nostalgia trip!
Don’t forget Hackerman’s sage advice, “With great processing power comes great responsibility.”
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.
