Robots are evolving from the realm of fantasy and ction to become real-world devices in businesses, homes, and the military. How will the proliferation of robots of various kinds change society? How do YOU think robots could make a difference and how do YOU want them to change our lives? DARPA—the Defense Department’s high-technology innovation agency—wants to know what you think. Create a 2- to 3-minute video that shows the kind of robot-assisted society you’d like to see in the years ahead. The competition is open to U.S. high school students (grades 9-12). Five winners, with one parent or guardian each, will be selected to attend the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals to be held on June 5-6, 2015, in Pomona, Calif., and will participate in a special event there on June 7, to discuss their ideas and views with a panel of experts on robotics and society. APRIL 1 WEDNESDAY VIDEO SUBMISSION DEADLINE April 1, 2015 • 11:59 PM

Animated GEMMA NeoPixel Glow Fur Scarf #Wearables   #GEMMA  
https://learn.adafruit.com/animated-neopixel-gemma-glow-fur-scarf/materials

Build a fantastic light-up fuzzy scarf with 7 different color modes.  Easily switch between modes with the press of a button.  With a little easy code hacking, you can even create your own color combinations.

PLA 3D Print Vapor Smoothing using Pipe cleaner #3DThursday #3DPrinting
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/05/pla-3d-print-vapor-smoothing-using-pipe-cleaner-3dthursday-3dprinting/

The procedure is simple, the object is suspended above the heated THF rich fluid and the vapors dissolve surface layers and make them smooth. Do keep in mind that the fumes are toxic and there is a fire hazard…

This touch-able add on shield for Arduinos will inspire your next interactive project with 12 capacitive touch sensors. Capacitive touch sensing works by detecting when a person (or animal) has touched one of the sensor electrodes.

What will especially blow your mind is that in the retropie-setup.sh options you can change the splash screen to BMO's face. I imagine that's what promted the design of this case.
