To celebrate National Robotics Week we have a cool GIVEAWAY, a iRobot Create (R) programmable robot – we have here at the Adafruit shop (arm not included).
Create is an affordable mobile robot platform for educators, students and developers – use it to experiment, learn and play! Here’s just the beginning of the fun you can have with Create…
-Learn the fundamentals of robotics, computer science and engineering
-Program behaviors, sounds and movements
-Attach sensors, electronics, cameras, grippers and more
Create is preassembled and ready to use right out of the box. Beginners can observe the robot’s behavior in any of the 10 demonstration modes or program the robot by downloading scripts with any basic terminal program. Advanced users can write custom software using a variety of methods that take advantage of the robot’s “streaming sensor data” mode for more control of the robot. And highly advanced users can write programs for completely autonomous behavior.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
