“The closer we are to the family benchmark. The closer we will come to being the perfect family”.
The Quantified Self Movie is available for viewing on-line using Fandor or at two festivals taking place this August. The film is beautiful, futuristic and fairly creepy. This family is trying to reach perfection by measuring things like cholesterol, heart rate, weights, sleep quality, O2 saturation, arguments, sexual encounters and much more. There is DIY unfinished aesthetic to much of their tracking gear that leaves you wanting to see more. This is a 15 minute short that I think any quantified selfer or biohacker will enjoy. Trailer below.
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.
