Meet Covidisor, A Practical COVID Helmet That Lets You Drink Coffee #WearableWednesday
Drinking a fresh coffee on a nyc side walk is an exercise in risk-reward. Trying to gain enough sidewalk space to safely steal a few glorious sips before needing to hastily put your mask back up. Covidisor is here to save the day with its spacemanesque fashion sensibility.
The Covidisor, a portmanteau of COVID and visor (I think?), is a meant to be a replacement for mask-wearing that allows more of your face to be seen while keeping you safe from the virus. It offers many of the same features of the Microclimate Air: full head enclosure, filtration for both inhaled and exhaled air, and just good looks plain and simple.
But what the Covidisor has that puts it head and shoulders above the Air is a special swivel-mounted port on the front of the face shield that allows the wearer to consume any beverages via a straw. No longer will you have to make your face available to the outside world in order to enjoy that extra hot no foam latte. At last we can be safe, and caffeinated.
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.
