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.

  1. The Nest is decent in some aspects, but I would rather have a home automation system that doesn’t invade my privacy like the Webee http://igg.me/at/webee-smart-home-automation/x/5944165 or the EmoSPARK http://igg.me/at/emospark/x/5944165

  2. Why not use zigbee’s for placing sensors around the place? Run off rechargeable batteries and no need to have an rpi or arduino hooked to every sensor. Simply read sensor data from a central location….
