Previous experiments involved spraying the animals’ coats with reflective paint, but that reflection proved uneven, and there’s some speculation that the chemicals interfered with the animals’ natural waterproofing. Antlers, however, are always front-and-center, and they are shed in the spring when the sun returns. A new coating can then be applied during the traditional fall round-up.
With all the money and engineering time spent on avoiding automobile/livestock collisions, it’s refreshing that — in some cases, anyway — all we needed was a shiny new horn.
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.
