Ravi Mistry has recently got into Life Logging. He was inspired by the “Dear Data” project which featured hand illustrations of daily life that became a book. Ravi decided to use an IFTT (if this, then that) recipe that would record the temperature around him for the month of October. He probably used one of these two applets 1 or 2. It is empowering to see just how easily this kind of data can be collected and elegantly arranged. The full interactive image can be experienced on tableau.com.
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.
