A video screen shows an initial view of a desolate landscape, dry and barren. The spectators are invited to breathe in a small earth globe, in which has been hidden a micophone connected to the system. With each breath, grass, leaves and flowers appear in the landscape, until they cover the whole ground with colours and life. When the breathing stops, after a short time the vegetation disappears and the landscape turns barren again: the earth needs our breath to stay alive!
Which each new session, other combinations of vegetation appear – it is always a surprise which flowers will be produced by your breathing.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
