A special thanks to everyone who stopped by our weekly “ask an engineer chat” – we’ll be back next week (Saturday, September 12th at 10pm ET). Congrats to “ongissim” who won the trivia contest “What was Adafruit’s first kit” – the answer was “The MiniPOV 2“. For 2 weeks in a row we’ve had perfect video and sound, next week we’re going to work on saving a chat log – we think the best way is to log via an IRC client since Ustream seems to support IRC (most folks use the Flash chat though). If anyone has any expertise or suggestions, post’em up in the comments!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
