During the past few years, Blanke has merged his love of music and electricity into a small business, which lets him use both his marketing and soldering skills to produce graphically intense little boxes, adorned with switches and knobs users can control, light and touch sensors users can interact with, and LEDs to give them pinpointed feedback about what’s going on inside. Blanke’s creations are heavily influenced by electronic-music pioneers Léon Theremin, whose eponymous instrument generates sounds based on the proximity of a musician’s hands to a pair of antennae, and Robert Moog, the father of the electronic music synthesizer.
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.
