Fun project to track where cats actually go when they’re free to roam at night with an end goal to help owners take more consideration into their pet’s and the local flora and fauna’s safety. From Mashable:
Cats love to wander — but just how far they go is pretty wild.
More than one dozen cats were fitted with GPS trackers to show the distance they roam from their homes. The end result was a series of maps, which provide fascinating insight into the travelling habits of felines.
The maps are part of a cat tracking project by the Central Tablelands Local Land Services in Australia and is all about educating owners on where their pets go when they aren’t looking.
“Cats are given a pretty bad rap. In terms of the damage they do to biodiversity, to native fauna and flora,” Peter Evans, a senior land officer, told Mashable Australia.
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.
