The Girl Who Drank the Moon

📕 The Girl Who Drank the Moon

I read a cool book called The Girl Who Drank the Moon. You can view my summary here.




This book is pretty long and it takes a lot of time to finish reading. There are a few sad parts, but there are good ones. If you want me to rate how good it is from 1 to 5, I would say 5.

Sphero

I received a robot called Sphero, which has the shape of a ball. Take a look at this:


Yup, that's Sphero. Specifically, it's a Sphero SPRK+. This Sphero can be programmed with Sphero SPRK Lightning Lab. This is how an SPRK Lightning Lab program looks like:


That program there is meant to make Sphero try to run away from you. You have to chase him when this program is running! Don't worry, there is a stop button. When I'm finished, I'll post the program on this website. When I post it, you'll be able to instantly run it thanks to the Sphero Javascript API. I have a plan, but I'll keep that a secret until I'm finished. By the way, you can make a lot of things with Sphero. You can even use Sphero as a motor for some sort of machine that you're making. Sphero is even waterproof, so you can put in a tub and play with it while you're taking a bath. Well, for that, your phone will need to be waterproof or have a waterproof case because you need a smartp…

I made a hologram

Look at what I made! I made this thing to project holograms. It looks like this: 




Pretty cool, huh? Just so you know, I used a neat little photography trick here in case that caused confusion. This little thing is super easy to make, so don't freak out about it. 

In case you didn't know, holograms are 3D images that change when you move to a different point of view. 

I'll show you how to make it in a short little book. Click here to see it. When I put this hologram projector on a phone/tablet and load up a special type of video, the hologram projects.
