All of Klarin’s Future Fossils are objects and tools that were once widely-used and/or historically important. Now, thanks to the artist’s clever treatment, these items look weathered and distressed, as if they’ve recently been excavated from deep beneath the Earth. They serve as a reminder that time is fleeting in the world of technology—rapid advancements, in as little as 15 or 20 years, cause devices to become obsolete, making them artifacts of another era.
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.
