Wallace and Gromit, two of the world’s best-loved animated characters, started out life as primitive lumps of colored putty. But like other non-digital animation, they’re brought to life by painstakingly photographing a scene 24 times for every second of footage.
You don’t need high end equipment to make your own movie though: in this age of high resolution digital cameras or smartphones, anyone can have a go. Here at MakeUseOf.com we’ve looked at various examples of stop-motion camera apps over the years for smartphones, and these are a great solution.
But what if you wanted something a little more permanent? If you own a Raspberry Pi with the PiCam camera module, you’re already well on the way to building your own stop-motion animation studio!

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.
