Who wouldn’t want to be able to control their garage door over the Internet? No one, that’s who.
I’ve recently mounted a 7″ Android tablet in my wife’s car to control navigation, music, realtime ODB II data, and various other tasks. My wife then asked if she could control the garage door with the tablet. “Well….. you can, but I have to build something to do that.” “Ok, then build it.”

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.
