I’m an illustrator and visual display artist from Canada. I’ve always had a huge interest in tech projects but coming from the art side and not the engineering side, it’s been a lot to wrap my head around. I’ve always tinkered here and there, but with no formal training you can only go so far.
I’ve recently been getting back into arduino using AdaFruit’s helpful no nonsense products. Almost every tutorial that’s related to what I want to learn and do seems to be made by you. (7 Segment display with trinket, arcade inputs with the Pi, and the larson scanner sunglasses to name a few)
I just thought I would send a personal message of thanks for those tutorials as they’ve been very helpful and well presented ways to get into something I’ve been wanting to be more proficient in for years.
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.
