A new and significantly improved version of the XBee Internet Gateway is now available, thanks to Jordan Husney‘s hard work and mid-air inspirations. If you want to connect an XBee directly to the Internet, the new version 1.1.0 is the simplest method for facilitating that connection. XIG code runs on the ConnectPort X2 and will be featured in the “Over the Borders” chapter of my upcoming book.
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.
