Artists who write code, who are able to transform the subtle movements of a bridge into remote sounds, or the shadows from a projector into interactive figures. Designers who aim to express a measure of the mediatic echo of news through aesthetic visualizations. An infinite set of new possibilities is open to creators when programming is part of their tools.
Programming can be understood as an endless set of instructions on a screen or as a language that makes things work. But, in the last decade, a revolution has happened in the visual and sonorous world that has influenced experts and beginners alike, and has spread over all the creative disciplines. New creative languages have emerged allowing users to easily learn to programme and create digital works on their own.
And this revolution has begun with two words: Hello World. The first two words that every programmer writes on the screen.
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.
