Tech Knits is a collection of fun, technology-inspired projects for knitters of all abilities. The unique patterns are inspired by science fiction and technological themes, with a cool retro vibe. The book begins with a detailed section on the basics of knitting, and offers advice on equipment and materials needed to complete the projects. It then includes over twenty original and creative knitting projects.
The projects in Tech Knits are a mix of stand-alone objects (toys and knick-knacks) and practical everyday items (wearables and accessories) with technology and science-fiction motifs and a 70s/80s retro feel. Each project features beautiful full-colour photography of the finished pieces, clear making-up instructions and easy-to-follow knitting patterns. Projects include: the Robot Cushion Cover, Cassette Tape iPod Cover, Robo Dog Coat, Headphones Hat, Space Race Nursery Mobile, Ray-Gun Place Mats, Reel-to-reel Tote Bag, Calculator Laptop Cover and a Graphic Equalizer Scarf – to name just a few.
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.
