Tour One of the Largest, Most Detailed Slot-Car Racing Tracks
When I was a teen growing up in semi-rural Virginia, for a few years, our town when bananas for slot car racing. At one point, our tiny town had two slot car racing stores and tracks. My friends and I lived for this hobby.
In this 25-minute mini-documentary, we are introduced to a Dearborn, Michigan man, Jimmy Attard, who has spent decades building a huge, highly-detailed slot car track in his basement.
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.
