Sally Byers aka Threadwitch posted up these pictures of her mindblowingly-awesome erupting volcano coat, which she showed on last week’s Google+ Show and Tell. She hand-soldered beads to SMT LEDs to make sewable LED sequins, and used a LilyPad Arduino to drive them. The video below will start right at Sally’s turn on the Show and Tell:
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.
