On Friday, July 19th, Ira will be chatting about DIY projects with Eric Wilhelm, from Instructables, and Mike Szczys, from Hackaday.
Think you’ve got a DIY creation worth sharing? Send Science Friday your most creative science-related inventions (if you’re in the Adafruit community send your Adafruit projects!!!). Here’s how: Write a brief description of your project and take a few photos. E-mail them your idea with “DIY” in the subject line. Submissions are due* by 5 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
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.
