A Magnificent Cityscape of Midtown Manhattan Built Out of Discarded Parts From Electronic Devices
Absolutely stunning build from artist Zayd Menk, via laughingsquid.
For a class project on “manmade” items, Zimbabwean artist Zayd Menk created an absolutely magnificent, incredibly detailed cityscape of Midtown Manhattan using various parts from discarded and broken electronics. The project stands a 65″x 31.5″ and took over three months to build. Most of the materials came from family and friends.
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.
