Today, we’ll be making the coolest, nerdiest desk accessory you could possibly imagine: a Minecraft Glowstone lamp.
But, it won’t be any ordinary lamp. With the wonders of copper tape, the Glowstone block can separate from the power base, meaning that you can pick up the cube, play with it, and store it in your inventory.
If you want to make it a different material – say, diamonds or redstone – all you need to do is print a different texture and use a different color of LEDs!
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.
