Last time we covered the brilliant cartoonist/inventor Steven M. Johnson, he’d just released a book of his transportation designs. Now he’s got a new book out and it spans every design field under the sun.
Johnson has graciously allowed us to show you some of the images from “Patent Depending: Armbrella, Sofa Shower, Unzipped Fly Alarm and Other Essential Products.” Here are just a fraction of the literally hundreds of concepts he’s got in the book. (Note that we added the headings; he’s got a different chapter titling convention in the book.)
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.
