If you never got to experience an arcade in person, or are feeling nostalgic for the good old days of gaming check out New Retro Arcade, a tech demo for Oculus Rift’s VR headset. The demo lets you walk around and play emulated arcade games in a virtual reality simulation of an arcade from the 80’s & 90’s. You can even play a few consoles like Gameboy and Super Nintendo, throw darts, shoot basketballs, and even go bowling in the simulated arcade! The only thing the simulation needs is a little Cupcade arcade cabinet to play!
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.
