Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Like the frequent fitting of the “Fibonacci Spiral” on nature photos (ferns, shells, etc), most of these look ridiculously forced; the actual element, even in the exemplar here, do *not* match the overlays. In the above example, the cinematographer is being *far* more sophisticated than the elementary lines drawn – you can see the hands reaching (at the lower sides) *above* the slope used – the slope is plain and simply *wrong*
If you follow the lines of the reaching hands, they lead not to the woman, but to the *creature* – then *accelerating* (with the high contrast) to the female figure.
Almost every example beyond is similarly trivial, and mostly forced – most of the visual lines are plain-and-simple single-point perspective – and the examples shown don’t even bother to follow the actual lines in the images.
Yes, the images are masterfully composed – but at least give credit for what the cinematographers actually *did*, rather than trying to make it look like they *missed* the composition.
