You may be familiar with maglev trains – but designer Margot Krasojevic just unveiled a 3d-printed LED lamp that brings magnetic levitation to your living room! Krasojevic’s ethereal Orbital Levitation Lamp hovers above a semi-conducting base and rotates in thin air when gently pushed. The light can also be hung like a static ceiling pendant.
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.
