Typically working with animal motifs and home furnishings designed as fine art objects, check out the work of French artist Geraldine Gonzalez. Originally trained as a shoe designer, Gonzalez now breaks up her studio work into three categories: paper, crystal, and mixed. Referencing a line from her bio, her ‘secret garden’ includes creating animal sculptures, chandeliers & lamps, ornaments & accessories, and designing entire window dressing displays. You can see some samples below, with my favorite being the ‘beating heart’ neon sculpture – I’d love to see that piece pulsating!
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.
