A four-year-old, 135-kilo female grizzly bear is your tour guide through Alberta’s Banff National Park in Bear 71, a VR documentary experience created by Leanne Allison and Jeremy Mendes at the National Film Board of Canada (NFB). Photographed by a series of motion-activated trail cameras, the short video segments chronicle the tagged Bear 71’s capture and release back into Banff. An interactive map allows users to make their way through the park and access the shocking amount of footage available. The result is at once quirky, poetic, and haunting.
“There aren’t a lot of ways for a grizzly bear to die. At least that’s the way it was in the wild.”
This ominous line is our first step into Bear 71. As we follow the bear’s movements, this vague threat is always on our mind. How will Bear 71 die? How might we be to blame?
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.
