The “Tesla Collection” is the most comprehensive compilation of newspaper and periodical material ever assembled by or about Nikola Tesla. The Collection begins on August 14, 1886 and continues through December 11, 1920. Comprising approximately 1,700 separate items totaling more than 4,200 pages, the Collection is drawn from both American and British publications and is reproduced directly from the original English Language material.
Seen together “The Tesla Collection” not only sheds new light on the early days of electricity, and the development and widespread acceptance by the public and scientific community of Alternating Current, but also provides a one-of-a-kind look into the early days of X-Ray, Wireless, Remote Control, Robotics and the efforts and experiments made by Tesla into the development and delivery of wireless Electricity.
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.
