As a member of an organization called Cyborgs eV, Buttendorf is interested in understanding ideas related to the fusion of humans and machines. According to Buttendorf, the organization was founded by someone who needs an acoustic nerve implant in order to hear. “Without it he wouldn’t hear anything. Regularly, he has to go to the hospital to adjust it again, that’s how the company is still making money.” For Buttendorf, our relationship with machines and technology suggests that we are, in fact, becoming cyborgs. “Our body is the sensor to the world. We perceive information through the body and process it there, to build a common reality,” says Buttendorf. “With the FINGERring and EARring I am using jewelry as a tool to set the human body free of a normbody [sic].”
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
