Check out this little video of a Raspberry Pi booting up on a tiny Sinclair Microvision CRT screen from David Barton.  Old technology meets new technology to awesome effect–very cool!

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.

  1. I love it.

    It has a weird ‘1984’ or (if you put a big Fresnel lens in front of it) ‘Brazil’ vibe, but then the familiar triumphant raspberry appears.

    I find it compelling.

    The little photographer dude is also a bit disarming, also lightening the mood.
