Explore the Apollo 11 Command Module in VR, with Accompanying 3D Print Files, via @Smithsonian @3D_Digi_SI
The Smithsonian Institute’s Digitization|3D division have scanned and modeled the interior of the Apollo 11 Command Module, which you can now explore – either as a 3D model in your web browser or as downloadable files to explore via GearVR or Google Cardboard! 3D print files are also available, and as you can see on this Twitter feed users around the world are already printing out their own lil’ Command Modules!

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.
