We’ve spent the last 3 years building our own VR content company (http://www.redironlabs.com). During this time, we’ve created many of our own parts for various things. I figured it was time to start sharing those here for everyone 🙂
OK – this is a fun one. We have to do a fair amount of 4k 360 videos over the next while but I like to have a nice 1080p standard video with them. To cut down on the number of tripods we need to carry, this lets us mount a small (sony handycam in this case) camera on the bottom, and a gopro device (gopro 360 fusion in this case) on the same tripod!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
