I decided I would try to play with one of the new features and make a simple WiFi detector. I am a big fan of the Best American Non-Required Reading series, which used to have a front section that included some of the most creative WiFi names around. I was certain that there would be some fun names in my neighborhood, so I thought I would use my Pi3 as an SSID ‘sniffer’.
Since the WiFi is built in to the Pi3, I can strip this project down to just the Pi and a 5V cell phone charger.
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.
