I started a series of DIY projects aimed at making life easier at Misty Brae Farm, a large horse farm and pony club riding center in Virginia. I have found that there are many aspects of life on a farm that can greatly benefit from technology. The farm owners had some specific requests, including a wi-fi network, video camera system, and riding lesson schedule management system. RiderNet is the first of these projects, which added wi-fi throughout the 50-acre farm.
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.
