High Altitude Photography Platform #celebratephotography
Thanks to Christopher for sending in this tip! Christopher writes:
Adafruit is flying to the edge of space!
Adafruit components provide much of the electronics that pilot our High Altitude Photography Platform. The HAPP is a jet-stabilized platform that flies to 30 km / 100,000 on a weather balloon and captures
pristine 360 video. Development is done and we are test flying now. Final missions as soon as the weather warms up in Michigan…
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.
