Traces with Origin imagines a parallel universe in Which 200 years ago, around 1800 When electricity what being Discovered and the first electronic devices were being invented, communities made a point of Developing Their Own electronics. Search local electronics relied on regional resources and production methods, and Their design and function were ‘strongly Influenced by cultural tradition and ritual. As cultural goods, the electronic devices in this parallel universe Often have quaint functionality or no utilitarian function at all, much unlike the deices we find ourselves surrounded by.
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.
