Wall art using power cords, No more “unsightly” cables! #ArtTuesday
Instead of hiding your cables , turn them into interesting and fun artistic expression on the walls. via decoist
It’s as if everything comes with wires these days. And the more electronics you want to put in a room, the harder it’s going to be to keep their cables and cords free from tangles and ideally out of sight as well. There’s nothing quite like seeing a pile of black wires stuffed in a corner or along the edge of a wall to ruin a well-decorated room’s whole look. Tying them up as neatly as you can or figuring out how to store them in something might be the first strategies that come to mind, but why not take it as a new opportunity to get creative?
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.
