Inspired by the work of Munari, Montessori and my mum and stimulated by my personal interest in building novel tangible interactions and by children in general, I decided to go on with building few pages, after the electronic pop-up piano, to complete a little book which I gave as a birthday present to my 6 years old niece Matilde.
It’s powered by 2 Arduinos Diecimila, one that controls the paper Pop-up Piano and the other is for controlling the Arts and Science Page while the Math page runs autonomously with 2 3V cell batteries.
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.
