Cool project tutorial from Denis Papathanasiou:

PiScan is an open-source version of the Amazon Dash Button using a Raspberry Pi and an off the shelf usb barcode scanner.

Before Amazon’s announcement (which, because of the timing on March 31, led some people to think erroneously that it was an April Fools Joke), I had been working on an open-source barcode scanner.

I was inspired by github user danslimmon’s oscar project.

Rather than be content with an SMS shopping list, I thought I could map the scan results to an online vendor’s API, to enable scan-to-shop, a.k.a., lazy man’s shopping.

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.
