Tweeting at @DaphneFlap, the catflap belongs to the very regal Daphne (who’s also on Twitter), beloved cat of tech journalist Kate Bevan. The tweeting catflap is a joint project between her and software developer Bernie Sumption, using the tiny Raspberry Pi PC…
Using a reed switch (an electrical switch that uses a magnetic field to make a connection between two metal rods) duct taped to the catflap, the software designed by Bernie tells the hilarious-looking webcam to take a picture as Daphne comes through the catflap.

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.
