You Put What, Where? Hobbyist Use of Insertable Devices
Insertables researcher Kayla Heffernan explains how insertables are progressing. Have you ever heard of Baby Pod? Speakers that can be inserted into a vagina to play music to an unborn baby. How about the IoT smart rectal monitor? While this talk covers the classic magnet and chip implants it does a nice job of getting into future applications such as sound waves using magnetic implants and electric coils for invisible headphones.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
