Why I <3 adafruit.com from Andrew:

Five reasons why I recommend Adafruit Industries (adafruit.com) to people getting started in physical computing:

  • Great engineering: their products are just superbly designed, engineered, and built.
  • Great curation: they research and test components and tools to offer so you don’t have to sift through 8,000 different kinds of things yourself.
  • Great service: they respond to customer requests and orders really fast (minutes, not days).
  • Great support: all of their products and kits have excellent libraries and tutorials for how to actually use them in real projects (learn.adafruit.com).
  • Great attitude: they really believe in and support open-source efforts and educators.
  • PS: They didn’t pay me to write this; I’m just a satisfied customer and see how my students benefit from their stuff.

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.
