‘Ink is History’ – the Chemistry, Composition, Etymology, and Yes, History, of Ink

The Internet Archive have a fascinating book on file, The History of Ink from 1860 by Thaddeus Davids. The back of the book includes a number of plates showing various writing ‘specimens’ and font styles (before there were fonts as we know them today) throughout the ages. Very cool!

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.
