Checkout my ambient lighting device which happens to resemble Dr. Who’s Dalek creature. This strange looking device is made out of multiple kinds of hardwood, test tubes, resin, glitter, copper tubing, a 10 element section of an RGB LED lightning strip, an Arduino Uno processor board with a connected IR receiver.
This device is controllable with a re-purposed IR remote control and operates in three different modes. In
Mode 1, the device acts like a mood light with controllable hue and brightness. In Mode 2 you select one of 23 built in display modes and can control the speed of its pattern display. In Mode 3, the Dalek selects both the pattern a
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.
