Let’s hearken back to a simpler time. Say, last night? When Thomas Edison inspired me to improve upon the 200 year old design of the carbon arc lamp. Made possible by two pencils and an Arduino. Honorable mention to Dangerous Prototype’s ATX breakout for supplying the 12VDC and 0.5amperes. Also, thank you goes to a class act, Ian Lesnet, for the prompt and kind PFO to a request for free stuff. Hey, ya don’t ask, ya don’t get. Remember the little guys at promo budget time!
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.
