It’s Halloween so chances are good that your co-workers are dressed up today. Redditor caronarnold’s office observed the holiday on Friday, and caronarnold claimed the title of costume contest winner with an Amazon Prime costume. The ensemble mashes Optimus Prime with Amazon boxes — get it? Though it’s only made from cardboard, the look required thoughtful construction and probably wasn’t slapped together in a couple of hours. It actually took about 10 hours and lots of hot glue. On top of that, it’s an insanely creative idea.
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.
