In honor pf the one year anniversary of the Microsoft Kinect (http://buildsmartrobots.ning.com/profiles/blogs/one-year-anniversar…) I decided to write an article on how to build a Kinect based robot. This is actually the second iteration of Kinectbot (I am not a very creative robot namer), the first attempt was taller but not very stable.
The Microsoft Kinect was released in the US on November 4, 2010. It was hacked on November 10, 2010.
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.
