Adding photos and video to your project can give you access to a huge amount of information. Besides building your own webcam, or time-lapse photo taker, there are a ton of AIs that will categorize the contents of an image for you, which can lead to all kinds of amazing accessibility and information projects. From agriculture, to robots, to security, to you name it, having photos and video in your project can empower you with information often inaccessible to microcontrollers.
We’re going to combine some powerful components and show you how to take high-quality photos and send them to a server that you control. Let’s do it!
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.
