This video from PBS Game/Show tells all about the history of Pac-Man. It discusses its early inspiration (trying to get women to play videogames), but the most impressive part is when the host reveals the programming of each ghost. On their own, one ghost’s strange and erratic behavior might not seem threatening, but put together they through the player for a loop, as it were. Check it out!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
