I’ve had this idea for nearly a year now that the version of chess in the Harry Potter series should be made a reality. I knew that due to my inexperience of using the Raspberry Pi and my lack of knowledge about the game of chess or electronics, this project was going to be challenging project but I still felt that it was something that could be achieved using the contacts and resources I had at my disposal.

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.
