While keeping the outside intact, Lovefone has retrofitted the phone booth with a workspace for a single repairperson.
Designed by Battersea Power Station architect Giles Gilbert Scott, the red phone booths are internationally recognised symbols of British culture but have been rendered obsolete by the rise of mobile technology.
In recent years, the booths – some 2000 of which are heritage listed – have been adapted for new uses like micro work spaces, sandwich shops, libraries and galleries.
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.
