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. I’d be a little leery about putting a $58,000 camera on a remote control rig, but that’s just me.

  2. Definitely not just you.

  3. Very slick. More at: http://www.omstudios.de/

    With regard to the cost, you could put the camera (and a couple of human beings) at non-trivial risk (http://www.helicoptersafety.org) by putting them (and the camera) in a cheap (~$1M helicopter at say $1,300/hour w/ fuel), for which you would also spend a small fortune in time and money trying to get a permit to fly and film in most if not all places.

    For less than the helo cost, (and perhaps with easier permitting) you could use a crane but even that would be expensive and require permitting if somewhat less risky.
