If you’re thinking about embarking on a shadow puppet project of your own, you might be inspired by Tim Bartlett’s Lotus Lives shadow puppetry. They look great and this is a stellar application for any laser!
Lotus Lives is about the transition between the worlds inhabited by three generations of women: the lead soprano’s (Lily) life in 1980s London and the present, her grandmother’s in 1920s China, and her mother’s in Malaysia in between. The Folktale is where the struggle between traditions comes to a head.
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.
