Zen and the Art of Making

Zen and the Art of Making @ MAKE – by our very own Phil.

At some point, we all become experts at something. I really want to avoid being an expert in some things, only so I can continually look forward to learning more without the overhead of being an expert. Being an expert means your journey is somewhat over. I was going to call this column the “expert problem” but I hope you enjoy this semi stream of conscience collected over the last few weeks.

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. The thing I love about science and engineering, and technology in general, is that while I’ve already learned a ton, and some people would consider me an expert in certain fields of electronics, I really don’t believe I will ever learn everything I’m passionate about. There’s always some new horizon.

    I do hope that continues the rest of my life. I will be very sad the day I feel I’ve learned everything I ever wanted to learn.
