I’ve got a super quick ‘n easy costume you can make in one evening– the Lucky-Cat to be exact, or Maneki-Neko (in Japanese). You know, those cute little ubiquitous kitties that sit in the window of your favorite [insert here: sushi, thai, ramen, pho, etc..etc] restaurant. Maneki-Neko literally translates as ‘beckoning cat’ in Japanese. So come hither, my crafty-cat, and I’ll take you step by step in the making of a Maneki-Neko costume!
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.
