Quantum Atomic Interferometer For Precision Motion Sensing #Sensors #Science @Hackaday
Hackaday posts about the current state of the art in portable sensors. Today these are MEMS devices, and you can get them for the cost of a hamburger. But if you want the ultimate in accuracy, you’ll soon want a quantum atomic interferometer. What is that, and how it will be possible to make one small enough to be useful?
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.
