TED Fellows are an extraordinary group of innovators and iconoclasts. Today’s Fellows in the Field features Ayah Bdeir, founder of hardware startup littleBits. Hailed as LEGO for the iPad generation, littleBits are a set of open source, preassembed electronic modules that snap together with magnets to make larger, more complex circuits, allowing anyone to play and create with electronics. The goal: to demystify technology and help people of all ages and abilities understand the building blocks of the 21st century.
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.
