In the mid-1990s, William Latham amazed the world with his Organic Art PC application and screensavers – introducing the public to bizarre, other-worldly forms rendered using cutting-edge genetic algorithms that continually mutate simple shapes into elaborate organic lifeforms. I’ve always been fascinated by generative art, and have long dreamt of creating an interactive installation where participants can influence the algorithms by their presence or movement. Walabasquiat uses Processing on Raspberry Pi and Android with the Walabot sensor as input parameters to create a unique, ever-evolving tapestry of pixels in response to the movement of its viewers.
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.
