Hello my name is John and I am a first year electrical engineering student. I would like to thank you for the enjoyment and knowledge I have gotten from your tutorials, open source hardware, and “Ask an Engineer”. When I started high school I had no idea what I wanted to do for a living. I had always been a supporter of open source software and liked the idea of using electronics to interact with the physical world. In grade 9 or 10 I decided buy your arduino starter pack. From there I became fascinated by electronics. The knowledge that you freely share quickly brought me up to programing my own avrs. A few years and many adafruit kits later I am etching my own boards and have a small armada of xbee powered cardboard robots to roam the halls of my university residence. (and by small armada I mean 1 as I have cannibalized parts from the others for my rfid/keypad dorm room lock) So this is a very sincere thank you for the knowledge I have gotten from your tutorials, kits, and talks. I will try as best as I can to share the knowledge I get as freely as possible. Thanks again!
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.
