Circuit Cubes Hands-On - Episode 144

2017-08-13

This week, Avram Piltch gives us a demo of the [url=https://tenkalabs.com/]Circuit Cubes from Tenka Labs[/url], a circuit-building kit for younger kids. The kit is LEGO-compatible, meaning you can enhance your projects using LEGO parts, but the kit differs from that of the [url=http://plughitzlive.com/radio/3-1677-lego-boost-handson-episode-143.html]LEGO BOOST[/url]. The BOOST is a kit designed to encourage programming, while the Circuit Cubes are designed to teach about electricity and circuit design. Instead of using wires to connect components, the Cubes use magnets and direct contact to transfer electricity from piece to piece. Avram and his son have tested the kit out, and Avram has his findings.

LEGO BOOST Hands-On - Episode 143

2017-07-30

This week, Avram Piltch gives us a demo of the [url=https://www.tomsguide.com/us/lego-boost,review-4538.html]LEGO BOOST[/url], a robotics kit for younger kids. The kit offers 5 guided projects and the ability to free-form create, all without having to "write" a single line of code. Instead, the development interface is entirely graphics-driven, meaning that kids who have not learned to read can still understand it. In fact, Avram's 5-year-old son was able to create his own programming without issue. The LEGO BOOST is [url=http://amzn.to/2v9MYYk]available now for $159.95[/url].

Inexpensive Tech to Consider Purchasing - Episode 141

2017-07-16

This week, Avram Piltch brings us some of the best tech on a budget. First, Avram discusses the treacherous terrain of inexpensive laptops. Usually, battery life is terrible, or screens are low resolution or very dim, or even incredibly heavy. It doesn't have to be this way, as there are some [url=https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/best-cheap-laptop]great deals under $200[/url]. In addition to laptops, Avram discusses one of the most essential computer accessories: the mouse. Inexpensive mice can be awkward to use or even overly basic. [url=https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/cheap-wireless-mice]Some mice, however, are worth considering[/url]. $20 can even get you a wireless mouse from a reputable brand with navigation buttons on the side.

Native Realities: Everything You Love About Being a Nerd, All in One Place

2017-06-10

After conducting this interview, the crew and myself had to add a new word to our vocabulary: Indiginerd; a lover of indigenous nerd and pop culture. Created out of a love for comics, all things pop culture and the belief that there was not a substantial or accurate representation of Native and indigenous people, [url=http://nativerealities.com]Native Realities[/url] was born. Their goal? To entertain, and educate adults and children alike. The company publishes several books, available in print or digitally, from Native creators and starring Native and Indigenous characters with future plans to branch out into games and animated projects. This interview was a breath of fresh air for me. Being an avid comic reader, I was always disheartened with the knowledge that there were only a handful of books that had actual Native characters in them. However, for every one that was written in a real and believable way, there were two that were basically joke characters. It warms my heart to see something like this exist in today's world. In addition to the many things this company has coming down its respective pipeline, they are also gearing up for their second Indigenous Comic Con which will be held on November 10th through 12th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Please check these guys out, and to find out more about this great company, or to just go and let your Indiginerd flag fly, you can find them [url=http://nativerealities.com]here[/url].
