Hello, I’m Frank Zhao. I’ve been playing with electronics since my highschool days. I got my first Arduino from Adafruit in 2007 (order number 6870). Now I’ve joined the Adafruit Industries team as an engineer after getting my bachelor’s degree. I am super excited to design stuff for people to play with and to learn from.
I’ve got an incredible passion for making things that run on electronics. You might have seen some of my earlier open source work around here, like my LED Pocket Watch, USB Business Card, Nehebkau, or my FYDP: ARUCI. These were just the simple ones. Look forward to some new Adafruit projects soon, and more of my own silly creations here and there.
See my other projects on my website at http://www.frank-zhao.com/, mostly filled with open source projects and tutorials, with some handy web based calculators.
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.
