As models walked a set designed to look like an airport terminal – complete with check-ins, departure boards and baggage carousels – numerous versions of the velcro-fastening shoes, which featured LEDs placed around a thick flatform sole, were sent out paired with different looks.
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.
