Last year, Jacob Marsh was 23 years old and in the final year of his Civil Engineering Masters degree at Exeter University. He hadn’t previously shown any entrepreneurial zeal and was set on a relatively safe and straightforward career building bridges.
But on 29 February 2012, the Raspberry Pi Computer went on sale and Marsh’s life was changed forever. His company, ModMyPi, turned over £867,000 in the year leading up to March 2013 and he’s on course to hit £1.3 million this financial year.
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.
