Recently, we invited along for a short tour at the corporate headquarters of Tesla Motors in Palo Alto. And, we brought our camera.
The Palo Alto facility is a former HP/Agilent building, located in the Stanford Research Park, just a mile from Xerox’s famous PARC (Palo Alto Research Center). While Tesla now has a factory across the bay in Fremont, CA— the former NUMMI plant —their Palo Alto headquarters is where much of their engineering and small-scale manufacturing takes place.
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.
