The E.L.F. robot dances to the beat of any song it hears. One of the coolest things about this project is that its creator, John Jensen, had no previous hardware building experience prior to this project. This quick learner made the SpiderBot while deployed to Iraq. He chose the BeagleBoard to give the spider plenty of speed and well-defined dance moves.
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.
