Coming soon, from Adafruit – A button odyssey.


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.

  1. Would make a wonderful Hal Eye… I have an idea…

  2. I’ve recently discovered that some of the younger folks at my job have never heard of this movie. It’s a scary thought. Thank you for remembering it.

  3. I might need a few of those!

    Star Trek buttons would be nice too!

  4. I would like some as well!

  5. I’ve worked with a couple people who’ve purchased a large number of those giant LED arcade buttons from a different supplier. I’ve noticed that they don’t have a consistent polarity from factory. The first thing I do is pull the switch and light assembly from the button. I then pull the LED assembly and orient it so the visible resistor is on the side nearest the red push-button on the microswitch. That way I know the pole on the same side as the large black switch retaining tab is always + on all the switches I’m installing.

    I think that’s a handy thing to point out when you do a tutorial. I’m sure you’ll note that the light tabs are .250 and the switch tabs are .187 .

  6. How do I get an alert on it’s availability ?

  7. Available now!
