I know a few people in my life who desperately need to check out this tutorial via MAKE…including me.
Most of us spend far too much time in front of the TV. So I designed a system that will automatically limit when and how much the TV can be on.
The system works by controlling the input signal going to the TV. This is done by adding a relay switch to the input cable. When certain conditions are met, the relay is turned on and the TV is able to receive the input signal.
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.
