I’m teaching in the MFA Products of Design program at SVA here in New York City, and my students just finished their very first Arduino projects. Students were assigned descriptors and objects at random, like “paper craft” and “kitchen utensil.” You can follow our class blog if you’d like to keep up to date on their future projects. The video above is Richard’s junk mail iPod dock.
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.
