Thank you very much for Adafruit and ladyada.net. You are doing an incredible thing by making hardware accessible and empowering curious minds, and it’s exciting to see that something so good is a viable business model.
Your libraries and tutorials are phenomenal. Before a few months ago, I’d mainly written MATLAB, so I very much appreciate having commands to do exactly what I want (without worrying about parsing, addressing, etc.), and the Adafruit libraries always work. I took a peek at the Electro-knit overview and was very grateful for Becky’s disclaimer: “Before you begin, look at your life, and what choices brought you to this point…” I realized I’d caught the can-do bug and indeed had no business hacking a knitting machine. Maybe someday…
Thanks again for all you do.
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.
