Ada – Interactive Floating Ball by Katrina Smigla-Bobinski #ArtTuesday

I Want To Travel The World Inside This Floating Art Ball

This cool art project shares a namesake with Adafruit! Via Fast Co. Design:

The German-Polish artist created the ball using a transparent plastic membrane filled with helium. Dotting the balloon are charcoal spikes, which randomly mark the walls, ceiling, and floor of the exhibition space as visitors gently push it around. The piece’s title, Smigla-Bobinski says, comes from Augusta Ada King-Noel, the English writer, mathematician, and Countess of Lovelace. Commonly known as Ada Lovelace, she was the first programmer in history, creating the first algorithm for Charles Baggage’s Analytical Engine.

Lovelace was also the first person to see the potential of machines to move beyond calculus and into the realm of art. Ada, Smigla-Bobinski explains in a video, follows that spirit. Check out the making-of above.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

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.
