BBC Future published this article that sheds light on our pets’ evolutionary history and how that translates into our bff’s behaviors:
In fact, it seems that many of the so-called annoying habits that our pets have are just adaptations to humans.
“[Pet] animals are just like humans actually, we carry out a whole evolutionary history with us,” says Viranyi, who points out that our requirements have been changing so fast, it’s hard for them to keep up. “Moving the animals into this artificial urban environment – we live under circumstances that are different to the ones they evolved in.” Historically, these behaviours were useful, but things have now changed and we’ve decided we don’t want them.
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.
