Community Corner – January 29, 2016: The Featured Projects from this Week


Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project

(Note: Google+ login required.)

Ingmar Stapel shared his Raspberry Pi powered robot in our Community this week.

I am new to this community and I would like to show you all my latest robot project from the weekend. I enhanced my four wheel Raspberry Pi powered robot with the Sense Hat and two servos equipped with ultrasonic sensors.

The video shows the first dry test run to check if the mechanics, servos and the Sense Hat works well. Hopefully in a few days I will give a short update. Now I start programing the ultrasonic sensors. (read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

We shared Keith Hartwig’s sound responsive light sculpture, hex.crystals this past week

In 2015 Nicholas Auman and I were commissioned byPhiladelphia music collective WorldTown SoundSystem to design and build a sound responsive light sculpture for their upcoming residency at CODA nightclub. After hitting the forums we opted to use Fadecandy micro-controllers and Neopixel LEDs for the project. (read more)

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.
