“Analog” GPS from 1950

Pt 101372

Needs a little record player to tell you the directions 🙂


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.

  1. “Needs a little record player to tell you directions :)” – @adafruit, That was funny!

    So… people have been putting extra lights that plug to cigarette lighters in their cars for 60 years now? Wow.

  2. Back in those days the passenger had the job of vocalizing the directions!

    As far as using the cigarette lighter socket for 12V accessories, it is my hope that some standards body would come up with a connector (or connectors) that was more appropriate for the devices that we use currently. The existing connectors are HUGE and we have so many things to plug in.

  3. This gives me a great idea for a steampunkish project.
    I’m think a gps module, 2 servos for x an y and crosshair overlaying
    A roadmap. What do you think, perfect digital to analog gps retro style
