MC Escher And The Genius Of The Droste Effect #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/28/mc-escher-and-the-genius-of-the-droste-effect-arttuesday/

Via All that is interesting.

The Droste effect is also known as mise en abyme, or more simply, “a picture within a picture”. A series of nested, precisely drawn images give the appearance that the artwork goes on into infinity. This mind-bending video dissembles one of MC Escher’s works, displaying the artist’s mastery of this trippy effect in incredibly minute detail.

Teenage Inventor Alexis Lewis Thinks That Kids Have the Solutions to the World’s Problems #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/28/teenage-inventor-alexis-lewis-thinks-that-kids-have-the-solutions-to-the-worlds-problems-makereducation/
We love this interview from SmithsonianDigital with teenage inventor Alexis Lews!

Alexis Lewis, a 15-year-old inventor in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, wants children across the country to know that an inventor isn’t something you have to be when you grow up; they can be one now. Lewis holds a patent for a wheeled travois—a triangular load-carrying device with a bamboo frame and a bed of netting that she designed to serve Somali refugees, who need to transport their children many miles to camps and hospitals. Her patent-pending emergency mask pod is a football-shaped canister with protective gear that firefighters and first responders can throw through a window of a smoke-filled building to those trapped inside.

NEW PRODUCT - 12" Standard eTape Liquid Level Sensor with Plastic Casing
https://www.adafruit.com/products/2656

This eTape Liquid Level Sensor is a solid-state sensor with a resistive output that varies with the level of the fluid. It does away with clunky mechanical floats, and easily interfaces with electronic control systems. What separates this from our other eTape Liquid Sensor is the hard plastic jacket that makes it less susceptible to damage.

The eTape sensor's envelope is compressed by the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid in which it is immersed. This results in a change in resistance that corresponds to the distance from the top of the sensor to the surface of the fluid. The sensor's resistive output is inversely proportional to the height of the liquid: the lower the liquid level, the higher the output resistance; the higher the liquid level, the lower the output resistance.

This is a very unique sensor, we haven't seen anything else that is affordable and accurate for measuring liquid level. This particular sensor is the 12" model. It comes with a 3-pin JST connector.

Since the sensor is resistive, it is easy to read it using a microcontroller/Arduino ADC pin. Check the tutorials tab for a quick-start pointer.

Note: This product only comes with the plastic enclosed eTape Liquid Level Sensor.  In our demo, we set it up with an Adafruit Metro, a TB6612 Stepper Motor Driver Breakout Board, and an Automotive Gauge Stepper Motor.

Ghidaq al-Nizar Paints with Coffee #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/28/ghidaq-al-nizar-paints-with-coffee-arttuesday/

From My Modern Met:

Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar (aka @coffeetopia) began as a latte artist, but has taken his craft to another level by deconstructing frothy brews and utilizing their most basic component—coffee—as his medium of choice. Al-Nizar takes the steamy, soothing drink out of the cup and artistically applies it to an equally unconventional canvas—a leaf. The result is a series of sepia-toned scenes featuring a beautiful blend of nature and the pigmented, earthy, grainy remnants of a cup of coffee.

Abandoned Japanese Golf Courses to Become Solar Power Plants #SolarPower
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/28/abandoned-japanese-golf-courses-to-become-solar-power-plants-solarpower/

Japan is turning it’s unused golf courses into solar power plants. via discovery.com

By one estimate, more than 600 golf clubs across Japan now sit empty. The deserted courses remain a haunting reminder of Japan’s Lost Decade (the 1990s), when the nation’s bubble economy burst and the GDP plummeted.

How To Make An Automatic Fish Food Feeder using Arduino Uno
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/28/how-to-make-an-automatic-fish-food-feeder-using-arduino-uno/

Make an automatic fish feeder with Arduino Uno. via instructables

In this Instructables I’m going to show you how to build an Automatic Fish Food Feeder. So you don’t have to remember to feed your fish daily because your Arduino will do it for you. You can also set timers at which the fish get fed automatically like ever 6 hours or so.

This is exclusively for those beginners who want to have the knowledge of Servo motors and Arduino. This is very simple to construct and no soldering skills are required.

Creepy cool sculpture by Brooklyn artist Kate Clark. From her bio:

Kate Clark is a sculptor who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her sculptures synthesize the human face and the body of wild animals, exploring the overlap that exists across our cultures, and within our histories.
