New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday. I love it because it’s arbitrary, and we all know it’s arbitrary, and yet we count down and cheer and raise a glass and sing that song anyway. Here’s a video that talks about how the modern calendar came to be in its current form.
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.
