Waterscope, a Cambridge start-up company, has developed a low-cost, 3D-printed water quality scanner based around a Raspberry Pi and a microscope. Alex Patto, Richard Bowman, Nalin Patel and Tianheng Xhao met on iTeams, a programme started at Cambridge University which aims to help staff and students develop business ideas. The aim is to develop the device into something which can be used, and reading obtained and analysed, on-site rather than being sent away for analysis.

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.
