How Close are We to Tony Stark’s Scientific Future?
SyFy explores the science behind the world and mind of Tony Stark and examines how close we might be to Iron Man’s world.
In addition to the requisite villain, Tony Stark finds himself up against an even more pressing challenge: The palladium powering the miniature arc reactor in his chest (the one keeping him alive) is poisoning him — and he’s gone through the entire periodic table looking for a suitable replacement, without success. As is the Stark way, when the solution to a problem doesn’t exist, you must create it yourself. With some help from his late father and a DIY particle accelerator, Tony is able to synthesize a brand new element.

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.
