These scenes got me thinking about the use of cars and buses in films where the main focus is on the rocket ships that take our descendants to distant planets. Often the cars are an afterthought, good for the occasional chase scene, or maybe a shot of the hero pulling up to the Starfleet Space Academy. Often, the vehicles were sourced right off the car show floor, and included many a futuristic concept car. But occasionally, the cars were more original, and carefully thought out.
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.
