What are Makers if not modern day Renaissance people. In true maker fashion Da Vinci was an artist, scientist, inventor, and more. My Modern Met has an infographic of some surprising inventions:
Leonardo, made an undeniable mark on art history not only as a painter, but also as a musician, mathematician, scientist, military architect, and engineer.
Leonardo was truly the ultimate Renaissance man. He was hundreds of years ahead of his time with technological ideas, sketching and drawing the blueprint for some of history’s most important inventions.
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.
