I was at the MakerFaire today and I heard people talking about this thing called Arduino. Apparently it’s a religion or something. Anyway, I wanted to learn what all the fuss was about, so I went to a talk about it. The talk was given by a guy named Massimo Banzi. Apparently people tell him all the time that he looks like me. Yeah, I don’t get it either.
Anyway, I recorded the talk so I could share it with you. Enjoy!
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.
