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! More info here at the Smithsonian 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.
