Marc Fornes’ “nonLin/Lin Pavilion” is the latest “looks-cool-but-what-does-it-actually-do” project to land in the ol’ inbox. The installation—recently realized at the FRAC Centre (Center to those of us on this side of the Atlantic) in Orleans, France—combines elements of biomimetic design, architecture, sculpture and technology in what can only be described as an organic form.
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.
