If you didn’t know, Raspberry Pi is very small sized, cheap, low power ARM computer. I won’t write more about this – you can read it on official page. So Wednesday I wanted to go shopping and I remembered my Pi is on the way (I’ve got email informing about it), so I looked into mailbox and almost screamed… 🙂 I gave up on shopping and started hacking.
In the video above – LED diode changes color depending on system load. Green for less than 20%, blue for less than 50%, red for more.
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.
