PICK AND PLACE ROBOTS


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Beautiful film. Everything I’ve read about the NeXT manufacturing environment left me with the impression that it was very non-industrial, reminds me of what we’re seeing today in desktop manufacturing. I’m very proud to own one of these machines.

  2. All of that trouble to design their own, advanced pick-and-place, and how many of the NeXTcube motherboards did they ever build? Seems like a great deal of engineering for a product that was manufactured in small numbers. Since they were always so guarded about the numbers, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an estimate of the number of NeXTcubes made. Thousands, certainly, but did they even make 10,000?

  3. Dug this up via wikipedia:

    http://www.wired.com/gadgets/mac/commentary/cultofmac/2005/12/69888

    “… in the four years NeXT made hardware, only about 50,000 Cubes sold.”

  4. steve jobs once again advances the state of the art in electronics manufacturing.

    this is a fitting tribute to our brave industrial robots. *salutes*
