My name is Nick Grigoryev, I am a professional engineer, and I love to make robots!
I created this constructor kit to let children to learn the Code of Arduino, to prepare the engineers of tomorrow.
They can learn IR distance sensing, LED blinking (to blink the car lights is much more interesting, than one LED), servo control, GPS signal acquiring and processing, LCD screen, piezoelectric buzzers, inertial measurement units, etc.
This is a third version of my “Neurobot 1” (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1378603) with LCD screen, 3 radars and Arduino Mega, but without Raspberry Pi for easier assembly and programming.
It is a robot, which can run in autonomous mode or to be RC controlled.
It runs Arduino Mega as a “brain” and three IR sensors (distance 10-90 cm) as his “eyes”.
You can run very interesting programs with “Adafruit Ultimate GPS breakout” sensor, RTC (real time clock) etc., installed on the breadboard.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
