Watch the First Teaser for BBC’s New Dracula Series, from the Creators of Sherlock
Sign me up for ANYTHING from the creators of the amazingly entertaining Cumberbatch + Freeman Sherlock. We heard it first from Tor.com.
Action-nuns! Body horror! Dracula with a British (not Transylvanian) accent! Over the weekend, the BBC dropped the very first teaser for Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel, and it (understandably) looks way darker than Sherlock.
The super-short clip is light on the dialog but stuffed with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shots of all the spooky paraphernalia you’d expect from a Dracula adaptation (jugular-slitting nails, portentous crucifixes, wooden stakes–wielded by nuns, no less!), and then some. We also get a glimpse of a contortionist monster of some kind (could this be Dracula in hangry mode?), an uncomfortably long shot of someone’s extra-juicy wrist veins, and a good, hard look at the titular vampire count, played by Claes Bang.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
