Every New Year people around the globe resolve to get healthy by joining gyms, eating better and quitting the detrimental habits that we complain about for the remaining eleven and a half months. We applaud those efforts, but propose that in 2013, we don’t just work on our waistlines, but on our hacking, coding, soldering and making skills as well.
We’ve gathered 10 DIY experts to get their proposed New Year’s resolutions, including repurposing forgotten materials and 3-D printing less stuff. And documenting projects better, something you’ll hear from a few of them. Read up, then get to your workshop.
Here’s to an inspired and productive 2013.
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.
