RobotGrrl’s RoboBrrd Featured on IEEE Spectrum

Our buddy RobotGrrl has had her RoboBrrd project featured on IEEE Spectrum’s Automaton Blog. Way to go, RobotGrrl!

We’re big fans of RobotGrrl around here, and one of her current projects is these totally cool, totally DIY-able interactive robotic birds called RoboBrrds. If you’ve always wanted to throw yourself bodily into the world of Arduino-powered DIY robotics, this is a great way to go.

If you like what you see, you can build your very own RoboBrrd thanks to this exhaustively awesome Instructable here, and you can also find details over on Make: Projects. It’ll take maybe a week’s worth of on-and-off work, you’ll likely need to order some electronics (and possibly some extra popsicles), and if you don’t know how to solder, well, here’s a great excuse to learn! YEAH!

Once you get your very own RoboBrrd up and running (or even if you don’t), you can share it with the world (or at least with fellow robotics geeks) every Thursday night  at 8pm EST through a Google+ video hangout. AND, you should remember that RobotGrrl is doing all of this out of the goodness of her (robotic?) heart, and there’s a handy little donate button on her website should you wish to help inspire future generations of roboticists.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
