here it is in all its glory! the minty boost by adafruit industries, or as i have renamed it after my sweet cat who purred as i soldered, the minou boost! the two batteries on the right are extra batteries. i think this took me about an hour to finish when everything is considered. putting the hole in the side of the tin with my drill was pretty tough. i made a major mistake with glue and the USB port, but thankfully it was easy to fix. i plan on repainting the side tomorrow…
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
