Purrfect for those who want a cat but can’t.
Japanese artist Wakuneco makes three-dimensional, felted felines that you’d easily mistake for the real thing.
Using portraits of actual cats as reference, Wakuneco pokes layers of wool with a barbed needle until the materials resemble body parts such as the ears, the nose, and the mouth. Other details – like the whiskers, the eyes, and the fur – are then added to make the lifelike sculpture.
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.
