It’s that time of year when mad inventors start creating Halloween themed electronics projects. I’ve never managed to be organised to do a seasonal project but this year I decided to give it a try. So this year I decided to take what I’ve learnt about the Pi-Lite and create a simple Halloween project I can stick in the window along side our more traditional carved pumpkins.
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.
