Please note! This is NOT the subscription version of AdaBox! This is ONLY AdaBox002 that shipped out to AdaBox subscribers in December of 2016. This version does not include free shipping, the lithium ion battery, or AdaBox subscriber exclusive pin. If you’d like to subscribe to AdaBox, please visit the AdaBox page!
AdaBox002 – Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot Rover (Making Things Move) is the perfect gift for folks who are just getting started in the world of DIY electronics. It’s an excellent introduction to our wide world of robotics and a great way to test the waters of AdaBox before committing to a subscription.
This project contains just about everything you need to make your very own Bluetooth controlled mini-robot! You get a Feather Bluefruit LE (Arduino compatible microcontroller with Bluetooth LE radio), motor control wing, three-layer round robot chassis, two motors, two wheels, a battery pack + 4 x AA batteries, breadboard and even a little speaker to let your robot sing! All you need is a ~500mAh LiPoly battery sold separately.
Everything is plug-and-play – No soldering required! Use any iOS or Android phone with our free Bluefruit Connect app to control your robot friend after it’s been built.
If you’re an international customer, this is currently the only way to get an AdaBox (for now – we’re working on it!) and if you’re a subscriber who missed out on boxes one and two, a great way to spend your time as you anxiously await ADABOX 003.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
