You’ve heard about Machine Learning and AI – and you want to see what all the fuss is about. But you don’t want to spend all your time installing bazel and Jupyter? Or maybe you’re running an old computer or your only computer is a phone! What now, give up? Never! Thanks to Google Colab, you can run TensorFlow in a browser window, and all the computation is handled on Google’s cloud service for free. It’s a great way to dabble, without all the setup!
We’ve hacked together a Colab notebook that can see things using your computer, laptop, or phone camera! It takes live pictures from your camera and feeds them through the Mobilenet v2 + SSDLite model to find and box the objects it sees. This way you can see what Mobilenet v2 + SSDLite can do, instantly!
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.
