The team over at the popular wargaming portal Beasts of War has been putting together a magnificent Battle of Hoth gaming table for this weekend’s Salute 2015 (the massive U.K. gaming convention). They ran a contest to create a set of game rules for the board and are bringing the winner, Grant Ennis, to Salute to run the game he designed. I’ve seen a number of Battle of Hoth boards over the years and this one is by far my favorite.
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.
