Apple, Schmapple! Make your own phone with an Arduino & Adafruit FONA shield. This project will show you how you can use the FONA shield and a TFT shield stacked on top to make a touch-screen phone that you can program yourself.
Using Adafruit’s great libraries, you can make your own touch-screen dialer in 200 lines of code. Extend it yourself, or keep it simple. Design your own interface or code up a custom app, right from the Arduino IDE
OK sure, you can’t check your facebook on the Arduin-o-Phone, but maybe that’s not such a bad idea?
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.
