Oh noes! Pedro and I have been preparing for Hurricane Matthew’s arrival, which is supposed to make landfall sometime this evening. Unfortunately, that means we won’t be live streaming 3D hangouts today. But not to worry! This gives you a chance to catch up with previous shows – Last week was massive! We were in NYC for #WMF16 and had several folks from Adafruit’s remote team on as special guests.
Shortly after setting up our hurricane shutters, Pedro thought it’d be a good idea to bring out the Phantom 4 and capture some drone footage before the storm hits (could be useful for insurance purposes as well). We’re a bit west of West Palm Beach, but expecting to get quite a few inches of rain and lots of wind – fingers crossed we don’t sustain too much damage! If ya’ll are curious, you can follow Pedro and myself on Instagram and Twitter for updates.
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.
