What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or a seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer your engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week. Mosfet the cat stops by too. Previous chats can be viewed at http://www.adafruit.com/ask
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.
Thanks for the reference. I get a lot from IEEE but missed that one.
"not working" was my first text, but (obviously) not what got posted. It took me surprisingly long to figure out that the resistor values were selected by sliding the box at the top. I think that the resistor captcha would be more obvious to a human (an no less automatically parseable to a ‘bot) if there were some graphic indicator (an arrow?) on the sliders.
Is this episode going to be uploaded to Vimeo? – Apologies if it’s already there but I can’t find it!
