Ayah Bdeir has packed more into her 31 years than most of us do in a lifetime. She is most famous for littleBits, a collection of tiny circuit boards that snap together with magnets like Lego — allowing artists, students and designers to have a greater understanding of electronics. After creating the first littleBits prototype in 2008, she founded Karaj, Beirut’s first non-profit lab for experimental arts, architecture and tech. She has been a mentor on Stars of Science, the Middle East’s first reality show focusing on innovation. Bdeir was named one of Fast Company’s most creative people in business for 2013.
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.
