Video games can make you feel like you’re visiting far-off lands. As gaming systems get more powerful the worlds presented become more immersive and engaging, like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Watch Dogs, or even Skyrim. Designer Anna Dittmer feels this way as she’s created a physical stamp, like ones you’d get IRL to other country, to document your journeys with Pixel Passports.
The idea is based on Japanese “memorial stamps” that can be collected at historic sites and places of interest which make for wonderfully designed keepsakes. With Pixel Passports you can collect stamps from Mario, Legend of Zelda, Starfox, Dong Kong Country, and many more.
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.
