This morning I climbed into a tour bus along with 30 other Hatch and TorC residents and was hauled off to the Spaceport which is currently under construction – thus the hard hat – a mere 30 miles away. There I saw a 10,000 foot long runway along with good looking structures. Aaron Prescott led the tour explaining what was needed from local businesses and how the facilities would be used. It looks promising, but there are lots of unknowns about where to source materials, food, employees and other services.
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.
