3D printed master molds have been used to create microfluidic LEGO bricks that facilitate the study of liquid flow for medical research. The LEGO brick method is being explored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine, with findings published in the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, January 2017.
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.
