The iRobot Create 2 is a time tested durable mobile robot platform built from remanufactured Roomba robots so instead of spending hours, or days, or weeks trying to build a functional robot and figuring out your power supplies and motors, just hack the iRobot! Check out the tutorials and guides over at iRobot.
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.
