Microsoft and Lowe’s Test #VirtualReality Kitchen Design
This program would let you see in virtual reality what your kitchen would look like with all your Pinterest favs. From VR Scout:
Microsoft has added a big HoloLens partnership to their growing list. Thanks to an agreement with Lowe’s, customers are using the Microsoft HoloLens to design their kitchen holographically in mixed reality.
“The idea of using small samples and swatches to try and imagine what a room looks like seems very antiquated now,” Lowe’s Innovation Lab Executive Director Kyle Nel tells USA Today.
A big piece of news is the Microsoft HoloLen’s integration with the social network Pinterest.

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.
