WHERE: ThoughtWorks (99 Madison Ave, 15th floor, New York, NY 10016)
Join us at Hackaday NYC March for an evening of Virtual Reality and more! Tonight, we’re featuring talks by creative technologists who are designing a broad range of interactive experiences with VR.
We’ll convene with our friends at ThoughtWorks during their weekly Hardware Hack Lab. If you have a project that you’d like to bring and work on, you are more than welcome to participate in HHL as well.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
