Over the past year I’ve been working on my first big hardware project. It started as an experiment in powering and controlling led displays. I love the blinky lights and wanted something big that would catch the eye.
The end result is a tabletop sized arcade for a 4×4 lights out game similar in gameplay to the Mini Lights out Game by Tiger Electronics.
This project took me a long while to complete due to lack of free time. I began when my son turned one year old and finished not long before he turned two. The effort paid off though and I’m happy with how it turned out.
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.
