The Hocus Pocus spell book is a cool and slightly grotesque prop. But only slightly. Book, as it’s called by the Sanderson sisters, has a moving eye. Adafruit customer cbud made a replica of Book right before Halloween and used our Uncanny Eyes tutorial to add that extra dose of creep. You can see it in action above and read more about the code involved in our forums.
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.
