Make The World: Prosthetics was a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of DIY open prosthetics to people in need. The program was hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Key partners on the program included Robohand, MakerBot, The Open Hand Project, Anthromod, Prosthetics for Prosperity, eNABLE, The Lucky Fin Project and Hands for Africa.

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.
