These are absolutely fantastic – and show what is possible when you take advantage of a technique typically used for one process, and apply it to another. In this case ‘drawing’ on PCB layers and turning them into works of visual art:
I developed a process to convert color bitmap image files (PNG, PSD, etc) to files suitable for PCB manufacturers. David “Doz” Herman designed a number of pieces to see how various effects work, and I think there are some interesting possibilities.
These are all 2×2 squares, but anything that can be produced at a normal PCB manufacturer is possible. These were made at @oshpark and came out exactly as expected.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
