Neat idea for a simple to live with Pi system. It'll be easy for me to carry around for demos & Jams etc. Good in a classroom too!

Smalltalk programmers love to share their enthusiasm, skills, problems and solutions with each other. Every now and then a bunch get together at a Camp Smalltalk in order to indulge in a near frenzy of sharing.

It won't even cost you anything to at...

Plenty of (over) simplification and a few outright bits of nonsense but mostly damn good. Read it.
 
"Smalltalk is a vision of the computer as its own, native medium. The whole system can be modified, by anyone. The dominant version is called Squeak (logo: cute mouse), and a modernized version is called Pharo (logo: lighthouse). Both are free and easy to download."

They even got a Squeak screenshot:

Latest performance tests on Raspberry Pi Squeak; 90 Dorado and ~16 x faster than the original Pi with the simple interpreter. Not bad for a $35 computer!

New Raspberry Pi Scratch in Rasbian 'jessie'; blog post about it at https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/a-new-version-of-scratch-for-raspberry-pi-now-with-added-gpio/
The new version of Scratch for Raspberry Pi is faster, with built-in support for using the GPIO and camera module. Example project scripts are available.

Interesting model plane with large number of small flaps, each independently controlled; part of NASA research for better wings. I don't think even a Taranis' 32 channels would be enough for this.
NASA Aeronautics Academy interns develop flight control system employing fiber-optic sensing and segmented flaps to reduce wing loads.
