At home circuit printing. Faster than ordering a pizza.
These days, you can print just about anything! From chess sets to food, 3D printing and immediate in-house fabrication is everywhere. The FDA has even cleared a drug company to create the world’s first 3D printed drug. And for all you makers and tinkerers out there, the last bastion of at-home printing has arrived (ok, there may be others): circuit printing. A new company called Cartesian has created (one of) the world’s first circuit printers, the Argentum. Who wants to wait 3 weeks to get a PCB just to find out you missed a tracing? Now, you can etch your own PCB’s in the comfort of your solarium (everyone’s got a solarium, right?). Check out their website for more details!
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.
