Electronics as Fabric Textiles – the Tapestries of Robin Kang #ArtTuesday
TEXTiles//ElecTRONic// is a series of tapestries by artist Robin Kang. I recently saw the following pieces – Phantasmic Data Dawn and Lime Data – by her on view at the Queens Museum as part of their 2016 International exhibition (on view through July 31st). They’re really lovely works of art, and you can see many more examples of her work from this series – some extremely more abstract, others more like traditional PCBs – here at her 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.
