In my freshman year of college I knew someone who purchased a ‘flower power’ iMac G3, which she credited then with sparking her interested in computing – the aethetics of the chassis roped her in for good. And kudos to Stephen Hackett for acquiring a Blue Dalmatian, which I have never actually seen in the wild.
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.
