Whether learning to code, exploring the interior of cardboard boxes after being emptied of goodies, or just because, cats are as much a feature of our workbench and personal makerspace as the projects we build. What we call Cats of Engineering! We’re rebooting our gallery of images soon but in the meantime wanted to remind everyone to submit your own photos – images will be posted to the gallery and may be shared here on the blog as well.
Below is my 20-year-old friend Conky (RIP, she was named after the Pee-Wee’s Playhouse robot!) who actually rarely slept on my ThinkPad, so this is something of a rare shot. I do reckon this day was particularly chilly, and she knew she could warm up by napping on my PC, absorbing its excess heat 🙂
Title: Woke from a nap on a warm laptop!

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.
