“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.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
