The Editors and Contributors of GeekDad are very excited (and not a little bit nervous) to announce today that we’ve taken the training wheels off, and are riding all by ourselves! (metaphorically speaking). What we mean is that we’re doing this blogging thing all on our own now, and are no longer affiliated with Wired.
MAKE magazine is now it’s own company (spun off from O’Reilly) and now GeekDad is spinning off from WIRED. Big moves in the DIY arena.
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.
