For the past two days, web companies and mobile apps have peppered our Startup Alley here at Disrupt NYC, but today we’re doing something a little different. Those startups have cleared out for Disrupt’s first ever Hardware Alley, where we turn the spotlight onto some wonderful hardware projects.
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.
