If (like me) you like to move around when you code (couch/coffeeshop/bed/etc), then you’ll want to build a breakout board for your setup. I soldered the level shifter IC (4050, required for 5V microcontrollers) and some stackable headers to a perfboard, then screwed the screen & perfboard onto a project box’s lid. I also added two screws to hold a full-sized arduino board in place, when it’s hooked up.
Uses our ST7565 LCD AND touchscreen AND touchscreen breakout!
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.
