Raising your own glow in the dark bacteria is a great project for a biohacking hardware developer. Temperature control, constant movement and nutrient monitoring are key to successfully cultivating bacteria. Plus it glows in the dark! Thank you to Micah Zayner over at Artists are Scientists for a concise post on raising bioluminescent bacteria.
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.
