Octopart is a search engine for electronic parts. The company was started in 2006 and has grown with the mission to open up access to part data for design, sourcing, and manufacturing. We sat down with co-founder Sam Wurzel to talk about risk in entrepreneurship and what’s up next for disruption in hardware.
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.
