We are very, very happy to announce the opening of the newGeekDad Community, which you can find at GeekDad/Hotwired.com. There are some special features that we are extremely excited to show off. For all its time, GeekDad has been about community. A community of writers sharing their experiences and interests as geeks and parents with each other, and the readers. And we get a lot of great feedback from all of you: emails, tweets, messages on Facebook, and comments on the posts. But it’s also been obvious for a long time that our relationship with you could be made so much better. We needed to build a true community around GeekDad.
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.
