Christie Street is trying to be the Kickstarter for hardware products. The new site gives inventors a thorough review and doesn’t approve projects that aren’t viable. It also provides protections for backers, who can even buy insurance to get their money back if a project fails.
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.
