Hauntbox: Adding Automation to Your Haunts and Other Projects
Check out this new piece of hardware on Kickstarter, the Hauntbox.
The Hauntbox makes physical things happen based on inputs from sensors in the real world. Adding automation to your haunts and other projects is now incredibly simple.
The Hauntbox is a
prop controller and automation machine that is browser-configured, open source and Arduino-compatible. It’s cool because you can automate inputs and outputs with no programming!
The creators of the Hauntbox were on our weekly Show and Tell! Check out the video below. If the video below doesn’t work,
click here to start watching at 8:34, when they start talking about the Hauntbox. They are even selling a custom sound module that is based on Ladyada’s Wave Shield design.
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.
