Glass Arduino ‘Computer’ Sculptures Resemble Anatomical Forms #ArtTuesday #Arduino
Shaped like hearts, or perhaps non-organ organs, or biological structures that don’t really exist but seem all-too-real, these “simple computers in glass” by Ammy Olofsson are absolutely gorgeous. See more photos of her works from this series on her website.
I made three simple computers in glass. There is no breadboard, the connected sculptures with copperwires inside and electrical components soldered to them makes the circuit. I have programmed them for interaction, for connecting bodies to, uploading information to them, to blur and explore the relation human-computer-body-machine or cyborg as something floating
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.
