Check out this super useful project from Josh Crampton!

for +Paul Frederick , here’s my desoldering pot tip and stand for removing DIP chips quickly from double side soldered pcbs. the pool clips over the iron’s chisel point tip and snuggles onto it. the molten solder forms a bubble and you just dangle the chip legs into the top of the bubble to reflow them without destroying everything. I added some 75mm screws as pillars to hold the pcb level over the bubble. (read more)

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.
