Magic Cap Demo for Terry Winograd’s CS 547 class at Stanford on Jan 21, 1994 (video) –
Here is a demo of General Magic’s Magic Cap software done for Terry Winograd’s CS 547 class at Stanford on January 21, 1994, about two weeks after it was publicly unveiled at MacWorld. It’s probably the most comprehensive Magic Cap demo extant.
One day we’ll be able to remake some of what Magic Cap was doing on current hardware… workin’ on it…
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.
