The goal of this build was to get a cheap foot pedal bar that allows me to control apps such as Loopy HD hands-free. This allows me as an artist to keep eye-contact with the audience, otherwise I would need to look at the iPad all the time and risk getting sucked into looking at the screen rather than the people who came out so see me.
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.
