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.

Question (I asked this before, but in the wrong spot I think…):
So this question a lot more long, rambling, and open than most, but do you have any ideas for some way you could control the shape or stiffness or scrunched-up-ness or something-similar of fabric? So that you’d be able to control not just the color of certain parts of an article of clothing, but the shape as well.
One way I thought might work was attaching thread to two different points and using a motor to twist the thread up and bring them closer together, but that’d require a whole lot of motors to have something really interesting, and also aren’t motors pretty heavy to go inside clothing? (Unless there are actually light motors? I confess I haven’t looked very hard.)
