As the open-source maker movement gathers momentum, what was once a leftfield hobbyist activity is fast becoming a moneymaking business. DIY darling, Limor Fried aka Ladyada, is leading the vanguard, selling open-source hardware for a variety of purposes.
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.
