Codebreaker and computer pioneer Alan Turing was also responsible for the first recording of computer music. He hadn’t been intending to create a musical machine when he programmed computer-generated notes; they were meant as signals to the user of a complete job or the more troubling “digits overflowing in memory.” Yet the innovation resulted in three tunes that survive on a 12-inch acetate disc from 1951.
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.
