Memorandum for walking is a pair of altered sneakers designed to record sensory information from walking in them. The sneakers have five pressure sensors embedded into the soles of each shoe. Data from each sensor is recorded to an SD Card through a microcontroller and custom software. This recorded data is used as the foundation for a series of sculptural works, with each one uniquely addressing where the walk was taken. The first of these walks took place in the Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown, MA, where I followed coyote tracks through the sand dunes in the Province Lands.
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.
