The epicenter of that robotics revolution isn’t Silicon Valley. It’s in greater Boston. There are about 100 robotics companies in the region, more than two dozen research programs, employing 3,200 people with sales from companies approaching $2 billion. Sure, the military is a lucrative sector, but robotics has gone far beyond drones.
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.
