Great project addressing important questions from Diarmuld Farrell on vimeo:
For this projects I wanted to explore what it would be like to make technology and nature be codependent in a household. Due to the rise of smart devices in the home such as Amazon echos, or google home talking to and interacting with technology like a human is more and more becoming the norm as AI and voice recognition software becomes more and more advanced. However I believe there is something deeply lacking in how we currently interact with and treat these objects, these objects are supposed to be treated as humans and members of the family however they are treated simply as tools there is no symbiosis between home device and human the relationship is purely for the benefit of the human.
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.
