Fran also uses the video to announce a new project she’s starting in collaboration with the Smithsonian, the recreation of an Apollo DSKY, or display & keyboard for the Apollo guidance computer. These devices were the human interface to the critical computer guidance systems that flew the Apollo missions to the moon and back to earth. It will be very interesting to see how Fran goes about recreating the special displays and hardware of the DSKY–should be a fun project to watch!
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.
