a new cycling and walking experience stilted 10 meters (32 feet) above ground and weaving through the treetops has opened within the bosland forest, in the belgian province of limburg. ‘cycling through the trees’ forms a gradually-inclined path that allows visitors to ride along a 100-meter (328 feet) diameter double circle that offers 360° views of the surrounding landscape. the bridge is elevated on a network of columns made from weathered steel, mimicking the tactility and form of the fir tree trunks that encompass it, thus helping the entire structure seamlessly blend into its environment. meanwhile, at the start of the path, visitors can relax and take in views from the information pavilion, which is made from stacked recycled logs.

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.
