One of the big problems in the world of printed solar cells is scale: it’s much easier to print a cell the size of a fingernail than one of useful size. Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) believes a process announced last week changes all that.
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.
