Now you get to show off a little bit of your gaming past with your smartwatch. And it’s lot easier to carry this around instead of a Pip-Boy 3000.
There are some watch faces that have simply been begging to be put on a round smartwatch face. And although Google hasn’t officially released an Android Wear watchface API, you can still find a wide range of watchfaces for the wearable OS in the Google Play Store.
One we didn’t waste any time throwing on our Moto 360 was the recently released “Secret Agent Watchface,” a watchface that is sure to spark nostalgia for anyone old enough to remember gaming’s glory years. Taken from the smartwatch 007 used in GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64, the watchface faithfully recreates that same UI, complete with health and armor bars (now used to show battery life). While the watchface originally launched before a round Android Wear device existed, it now finds itself perfectly at home on the Moto 360.
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.
