Google is rolling out an invigorated version of Google Earth, the app that lets you explore the globe from as up close or as far as you please. In addition to aerial and street views, Google Earth has new features like 3D views and interactive guided exploration tools.
3D views are perhaps the most striking new feature – they provide a desktop or mobile version of the Google Earth VR experience. In 3D mode, you can explore a location from any angle, and even send a virtual postcard of your exact view. Toggle back and forth between 3D and the familiar 2D view with the click of a button, though note that that not all locations have 3D views available quite yet.
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.
