This is an instructable for the Interactive LED Lab Coats, showcased at Autodesk University.
This instructable assumes a middling knowledge of a few different fields. If you can use a sewing machine, follow a circuit diagram, and load a program onto an Arduino, you can do it on your own. If not, it’s all stuff you can learn with the help of the right friend. Some of the steps are time consuming, but all the skills you need can be learned quickly.
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.
