Collin Cunningham at Adafruit – Joins as Creative Engineer

Hello – my name is Collin.

If you’ve used Circuit Playground or seen any of my Make videos, then you’re familiar with my work. If you’re familiar with my work then it’s kind of like you know me – so no introductions necessary. btw – Great to see ya, howya been?

Adafruit’s kits & tutorials played a big part in my introduction to the world of creative electronics and subsequent technological adventure-journey which I continue on today. I’m proud to tell you that I’ll now be helping Adafruit do the same for many others.

As Creative Engineer here at Adafruit, I’ll be wearing a few different hats – including a classy software development bowler as well as a sweet video production helmet (ooh – note to self – make video helmet). Also a magnifying visor for soldering. because they’re awesome.

In any case, we have much good things to come – so expect to see me popping up quite a bit around these parts.

Talk soon!


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.
