Guy Maddin was haunted by the disappearance of an estimated 80% of silent-era cinema. So the Canadian filmmaker dreamt up an online “machine” that would resurrect some of these lost stories, but only allow each of its creations to be viewed once. Seances, which Maddin made with Evan and Galen Johnson with support of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), uses an algorithm to shuffle its scenes into an ephemeral short film experience.
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.
