I am scatterbrained. I like to drink hot tea. Oversteeped tea gets bitter. I am easily distracted.

Automatic tea timers are hardly new and people have made them from discarded toasters and K’Nex which I have a lot of respect for. People on this site have been making them with Arduinos and Servos for a long time so I’m hardly the first. This project has three major differences though.

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.
