New Yorkers with a Library Card Can Now Stream 30,000+ Films, via @kanopy

Thank you Internet.

Beginning today in partnership with Kanopy, cardholders of the New York Public Library (the library system of the great city Adafruit calls home) can now stream 30,000+ movies online. The streaming service is limited to 10 “movies” per month (I assume a TV episode counts as a “movie”), so it would take 250+ years at that rate to stream their entire collection. But hopefully you’ve already seen some of these fantastic films and can focus instead on the hard-to-find or rare titles, including Criterion films (such as For All Mankind – The Apollo Space Missions), Makers: Women Who Make America, The Robotics Series, and much, much more.

And New Yorkers who don’t already have a library card can easily apply for one online here!

Again, thank you Internet.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
