Hey there 🙂 We shall open up a LOT more in coming days. I’ll be sure to remove that note you found on the schematic about being “proprietary” so you can “have at it” with the design! As you noted, it’s available under Creative Commons. You’ll even be able to put an Arduino in the design should you desire! Thanks for the feature Adafruit! – Ken Gracey
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.

LONG LIVE OPEN SOURCE.
Open source is the only way to save this species.
The limits of technological development are determined by what prior technologies have gone open. Look at the IBM platform today. Companies know this so they get us all thinking that patents and licensing are needed.
Just think how FAST technological development would LEAP forward if every single company and person released their innovations under a MIT and OPEN SOURCE license.
We would have anti-gravity, and matter replicators in 2 years.
We must stand on the backs of our fellow man to achieve the impossible.
Just think, if only Parallax supported an open source compiler (like AVR-GCC), it might have been a PIC inside of Arduino instead of AVR. Come on, Parallax, you’re so close to being really cool.
Oops, I mean Microchip. dur. No offense, Parallax, you guys have long been and continue to be awesome.
