Good news for folks who’ve recently encountered trouble with this project: a new installer script greatly simplifies setting up the system, while addressing compatibility issues between Raspbian Jessie, the PiTFT touchscreen and Pygame library.
This was one of our earliest Raspberry Pi camera projects (that’s an original Model B in the photo above), but evolutionary changes to the operating system over time rendered it inoperable. Thanks to the detective work of users in the Adafruit and Raspberry Pi forums, it’s back in action now! Any Raspberry Pi with a camera connector is supported.
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.
