Here’s a quick and easy Valentine for someone special, or a gift for a loved one anytime. This is a small desktop stand for a heart-shaped acrylic piece. The heart is laser-etched with your choice of sentiment and lit with an LED that simulates a heartbeat. You’ll need access to a laser cutter for cutting and etching the project, or send out to a laser-cutting service such as Ponoko. Some soldering is also required.
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.
