A little over a year ago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art launched its Open Access initiative, making high-resolution images of all public domain artworks in the museum’s collections available for free to the general public. Under Creative Commons Zero, more than 375,000 images became available to “use, share, and remix — without restriction.” Of all the people in the last year who have taken advantage of the Met’s new policy, New Mexico-based web and educational software developer Simone Seagle has been one of the most dedicated and creative, transforming iconic works by artists like Paul Klee and Claude Monet into interactive animations.
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.
