If you use our Bluefruit modules on a Mac, you’ll be happy to know we’ve released a native OS X application that offers the most popular features of the mobile apps on your OS X desktop using native HW. You can perform OTA firmware updates, use BLE UART (including exporting data to XML, CSV or JSON), and do basic Pin I/O. The app is still a work in progress, but if you want to get data from your Bluefruit board into a plotting lib or some other desktop utility, this is a great way to make it happen!
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.
