I’ve always loved the look of older radios, a long with that i’ve always had a strong love for jazz music. Recently i’ve decided that the pefect thing to add to my desk was something to play jazz, but when i had that idea i felt that i needed to take it one step further. I found an old radio built in the 1930’s and won the auction on it, i’m planning on restoring the condition of the case and using a raspberry pi along with some other components to play jazz music from an archive i found on archive.org (found here: https://archive.org/details/davidwnivenjazz?&sort=-publicdate&page=1) which contains a massive library of music (nearly 640gb).

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.
