We gave this guide a scrub down, updated old driver links, put up new pictures and a Lovely Fritzing Diagram of a modern Pi connected to the console cable, and even added tested notes on how to use with a Pi 3 w/latest Jessie.
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.
