ConnectedNES Combines Node.js + Particle Photon for Twitter-Enabled WiFi #NES
ConnectedNES is a unique open-source project released in May 2016 that wirelessly and easily connects the 8-bit NES game console to the internet with a custom “modem” you can build yourself! It is currently bundled with a realtime Twitter client but has the potential to be expanded to a collaborative platform.
Read more about the project here and see the source files here on GitHub; while it only has two tweets, follow the original ConnectedNES Twitter account here.
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.
