What better way to learn photography than a camera? It’s the brilliant idea of the pop-up book entitled This Book is a Camera, which hides inside a real functional camera, to illustrate the principles of photography that it explains. Designed by artist Kelli Anderson, this pop-up book contains a very simple optical system of pinhole camera, but also a starter pack of black-and-white Ilford photo paper, allowing you to better understand the concepts behind photography. A great idea! The pop-up book This Book is a Camera, is available for $29 on the artist’s website.
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.
