‘Domerama’ is Your One-Stop Shop for Calculating Dome Geometries
From trapeziums to hexayurts, from calculators to software for geodesic design, check out Domerama for all your dome-making needs. There’s documentation of jaw-dropping projects as well as make-it-yourself options (paper people, paper is highly under-rated for learning new tech!). There’s a dome projection FAQ if you want to build an immersive space dome, as well as explanations of a couple dozen connector types, and more.
And hat-tip to Donald Bell for giving the website a shout-out in his Maker Project Lab Update #18 video where I heard about the site, and now I’m sharing that knowledge with y’all!

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.
