Also check out the blog post to learn about the history of Atom and some plans for the future now that the core functionality is in place with the 1.0 release. Be sure to watch the hilarious retro promotional video that looks like it was pulled out of a time capsule from the 50’s and 60’s. There’s an awesome Atom ‘computer’ with lots of knobs, buttons, blinky lights, and even an UNTZtrument!
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.
