Check out designer Yuxi Liu’s poetic robot project featured on designboom.
the robot has a number of sensors that enable it to sense the world around it: the sea, the wind, the sounds etc. empowered by machine learning, it can discover the patterns, and create associations in its mind. furthermore, it translates these perceptions into poems and writes them on the beach. the robot, thus, is able to have multi-sensory experiences and present a kind of poetic sensibility. in other words, its autonomy does not require the intervention of humans.
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.
