The Emoji Ticker, as it would be creatively named, would serve as a visually striking and fairly useful addition to the office ecosystem. I want to share some best practices that were learned during the project, but before I do, let me share the story of how we planned and executed on this project.
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.
