Previously known for their insulated panels for commercial buildings, Kingspan is now offering an integrated, intelligent lighting system that includes efficient natural daylighting that automatically coordinates with high-efficiency LEDs to optimize lighting in the building at any given moment. The company claims the system can deliver 80 to 90 percent energy savings over a standard commercial lighting system. With the addition of rooftop solar panels, external energy demand is actually brought down to zero, meaning a payback time on initial capital investments of just a few years.
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.
