Just had word from Worldpay about a really interesting Hackathon that is happening at the Impact Hub, Westminster on Friday 23rd September to Sunday 25th September. Using Raspberry Pis, LEGO and other kit and Worldpay’s new IoT open-source technology Worldpay Within, you will investigate and develop ways of paying in the world of the Internet of Things. You can read more and request an invite on their website. There are cash prizes for the winning team, and for the runners-up.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
