I had tried with the Roland SPDS and other pads, however, they are constructed in a very linear and rectangular way with 4 square pads lined up side-by-side in rows of 2 or more. What I noticed when I played these kinds of pads was that my very limited movement did not fit with their lay out.

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.
