While Isozee (Isono-san, President of MDC who makes the Adafruit Pick and Place) is an amazing man in every respect in my books … this little tip he posted on the Adafruit forums is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in ages. His feeders are already inexpensive, and the machine is mechanically top notch … but LEGO feeders. I mean … LEGO! Where’s the Nobel committee when you need them?!
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.
