Materials
1 (1) backpack. There are 2 requirements when choosing a good backpack for this project: room to install your solar panels and a pocket to store your cell phone. The Drifter square backpack is perfect for this project.
2 (1) portable solar panel with usb output.
3 Plenty of felt. It should be enough to provide backing for your solar panel and
4 (1) role of Velcro
5 Plenty of thread. Be bold and have it accent your solar panels or have it match the color of your backpack. It is up to you!
Tools
1 Scissors. Fabric or brand new scissor work best.
2 Stitching Needle.
3 Utility knife.
4 Fabric pencil or crayon.
5 Hot glue gun.
6 Freshly made fruit smoothie. This is to keep you hydrated and energized while you work.
7 1 extra hand (optional). This will definitely help and you can also give it high fives after each step!

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.
