My fiancee, Shirin, and I have been dating for about 4 years and I wanted to do something really nice for her birthday. She misses our dog Pickles while she’s at work so I built her a device that allows her to give him treats while she is away and Pickles is home. My goal was to give her a little burst of dopamine and, if I’m lucky, a little heart flutter when she uses it. She has been consistently using it 5-10 times a week so it apparently both works and was well received.

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.
