Exploring Arduino Projects on the Adafruit Support Forums!
For a couple of weeks now, maker “bob500000” has been developing and tuning a project with the help of the Adafruit Technical Support engineers over at the Adafruit Forums — and now the project appears to be up and running, with a posted image called “Complete!” Check out the long journey and what we can all learn about how to tackle these sort of challenges. (Thanks, Mike, Rick and Bill for the detailed responses to help all of us, your colleagues included!)
Here’s where it all started back in mid April:
Is it possible to link 4 shift registers via one arduino board, I am either looking at using just 4 pins on the board, I have all the code that I want to run, just the linking of the shift registers.
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.
