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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython in 2018 – Python on Microcontrollers is here!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. How much tinkering would be needed to get the UV sensor hat to include a Neopixel to display the UV index as a appropriate colour blink in appropriate amount of repetitions? (ie. UV index 8, Neopixel would blink in red 8 times) Could a soft button (such as a Lilypad button, or anything alike) be used to make sure that the battery isn’t drawn empty and to give the information on request? Or is it a fool’s folly?

  2. I’ve never programmed before but I’m making a project with the GEMMA. Where do you suggest I start with learning how to program? Arduino tutorials? Just messing around with others’ code?

  3. Barbara, try to get the neopixel sample code up and running using the Introducing GEMMA guide. You may want to read through our Arduino lessons to get a better understanding of how everything works. Arduino.cc is also a great resource!
