My original idea, as proposed in my Roadtest application, was to “sandwich” all of the components between two sheets op plexiglass and provide access to the LCD for control.
Because I’m not the handiest man around, I thought of designing the plexi sheets I would need and have them laser cut through some online laser cutting service.
I started searching for laser cutting services nearby, but once I saw the price to get what I wanted cut, I quickly abandoned that track. Way too expensive!
It was time to learn a new skill. I went to the local hardware store, bought a sheet of plexi, some drill bits, and got started …
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.
