I thought you and your customers would like to know about the Gameduino kickstarter. Gameduino connects your Arduino to a VGA monitor and speakers, so anyone who can write an Arduino sketch can create video games. It’s packed full of 8-bit game goodness: hundreds of sprites, smooth scrolling, multi-channel stereo sound. James Bowman, the project sponsor, has some great pledge rewards, including a “… 64-byte message burned into an easter-egg section of every Gameduino’s boot ROM. Enter the realm of the immortals (geek section). I’m hoping he gets funded and Adafruit starts carrying the Gameduino!
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.
