Update this is going on now! Phillip will be doing a call/chat live from Adafruit Industries “FutureCast: open-source hardware and MAKE-ing the future” – join Jerry Mchalski and Phil in a one hour conversation as they discuss topics such as open-source hardware, new hacker-spaces opening up, and the Fabber and Maker movements as they continue to develop in the coming years. The conversation will take place Thursday, February 11th from 11:00am to 12:00pm PST. Toll Free number: 1-800-868-1837 – International number: 1-404-920-6440 – Participant code: 548723# . We will turn on the Livestream feed as well (located here) during the call, we may do a quick tour of the Adafruit factory, we’ll see if it works out 🙂
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.
