Patent trolls cost money. In 2011, US Business entities took direct losses of $29B due to patent trolls.^ It’s time to end the madness and fix the broken patent system. The Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) curtails the power afforded to patent trolls and ends many protections they currently enjoy.
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.
