have a problem … the sun is too strong!
So I decided to create a handbag with a little trick … a UV sensor who

plastic bottles, partly hand knitted.
The handles are made from PVC pipes.I like the coupling of different
Every time I go around with my handbag someone will ask about … I’m
really proud of it!
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.
