You Put What, Where? Hobbyist Use of Insertable Devices
Insertables researcher Kayla Heffernan explains how insertables are progressing. Have you ever heard of Baby Pod? Speakers that can be inserted into a vagina to play music to an unborn baby. How about the IoT smart rectal monitor? While this talk covers the classic magnet and chip implants it does a nice job of getting into future applications such as sound waves using magnetic implants and electric coils for invisible headphones.
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.
