Marcin Jakubowski Talks About the Global Village Construction Set
At the beginning of the year, I posted up the promo video for the Global Village Construction Set. The project has been moving along steadily, and recently founder Marcin Jakubowski gave a TED talk, in which he talks a bit about his work and how far he’s progressed.
You can learn a lot more at his blog, here, and even contribute your skills to various aspects of the project (here’s one example).
Finally, I love this quote: “a newly relevant diy maker culture can hope to transcend artificial scarcity.”
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.
