Researchers from Harvard and Northwestern University have stored Hokusai’s 19th century woodblock painting “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” using a new method involving protein molecules.
Over the years, scientists have developed techniques to accurately store information in DNA, which if fully developed, could completely change information technology by mitigating the risk of cyberattacks or environmental dangers such as fires or floods that could compromise a computer’s hard drive or a book. But despite advances in the science, the process of storing digital information in DNA remains expensive and time-consuming.
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.
