What if instead of waiting for a field to be open after a soccer game for your team to practice you could check your phone and find a park 10 minutes away where you could practice now? Maybe IoT can be more than industrial system monitoring. IoT provides the ability to make parks more accessible and better maintained while reducing costs for financially stressed park districts. Perhaps it can promote activity and use of a great resource: America’s thousands of public parks.

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.
