Would LOVE to visit this exhibit IRL, via ianVisits.
There’s a basement in central London that’s currently filled with movie costumes from one of the original cyberpunk cult movies
The film, Hackers about a bunch of, well, computer hackers, is very much of its time, when the internet wasn’t that well known, and “hackers” were seen as nerds who weren’t popular at school. Then this film came along, and let’s be candid, it’s pretty bloody awful as plotlines and scripts go, but the visuals were astonishing, and the music pumping.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
