Check out this awesome model of the Rosetta Stone, if you have a 3d viewer like Google Cardboard you can see it in VR! Via My Modern Met:
The Rosetta Stone is one of the British Museum‘s top attractions, but its popularity—and location in a glass case—can make it difficult to examine the historical artifact closely. Now, the museum has placed a 3D model of the Rosetta Stone online, allowing people around the world to get up close and personal with the piece—for free!
The museum collaborated with Sketchfab to bring the Rosetta Stone, as well as over 200 other items from the British Museum, online in three-dimensions. “This scan was part of our larger attempt to capture as many of our iconic pieces from the collection —and indeed the unseen in store objects—and make them available for people to view in 3D or in more tactile forms,” shared museum advisor Daniel Pett.

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.
