The Make Presents video series took an in-depth look at a number of common electronic components, instruments, & fundamentals – exploring their usage, functionality, and even a good bit of history. Each episode was initially planned as an introduction for newcomers, but there’s some interesting bits of info in there for veterans as well.
I learned a lot while researching & shooting these vids and every now & then someone comes up to me on the street and tells how much they’ve enjoyed watching them. That’s always a great feeling – especially considering this is educational content. I love you internet.

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.
