This project came about in an odd way. Where I work, we have an arcade club. Basically, a group of guys get together and play old school video games. The only problem is I am the only guy in the club that has an arcade we can use. So, after getting tired of hosting the arcade club every time we wanted to play, I started thinking about how to make an arcade portable. I finally arrived at the conclusion to make one into a briefcase. Also, I watched Iron Man 2 and saw Tony Stark put the Iron Man suit into one, so I figured I could put an arcade into one.
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.
