As we see with the predominance of smart phones in our lives, technology can be a double-edged sword. These days, it seems like there’s an app for just about everything. With the talk about drones as the next breakthrough, we found it funny, frightening, and fascinating to imagine the world when they serve as our go-to devices.
This is a collection of narrative icons exploring some of the everyday tasks that could easily be done with the help of drones. Help us imagine our future in a world where drones and humans live together.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
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.
