Gareth Fowler is a Toronto-based artist & designer, and he’s the maker of these absolutely stunning 3D-modelled animated GIFs of mechanical contraptions. Some look like mechanisms you might recognize or at least understand their application, while others you might wonder, “What does that do?” You can check out his full portfolio on his website and track his newest GIFs on his Tumblr blog.
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.
