Hi Adabot and LadyAda, I just completed my StorageBot project for the Instructables ShopBot contest. It uses robotic technologies to help locate parts in bins using a very unique approach. You basically speak to the StorageBot and it “spits out” the parts you are looking for. I used a lot of common parts from the DIY community like stepper motors, a servo, an Arduino compatible processor and 3 meters of the addressable light strip from Adafruit. My favorite part of the project was a 10 minute video demoing the StorageBot but also explaining the significance of why we Makers build things.
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.
