Perhaps like myself, you’ve owned a cat — or more likely, been owned by one. You know the joy that cats can bring, even when they’re deliciously obnoxious. What is it about cats that captures our hearts and enslaves us through their charm? Let’s find out in a very physical way by becoming one! With these DIY #ElectronicKittyEars
I created them as part of a workshop, during MAKE MUNICH, for KIDS! And with my friend Joshua Brooks of AutoDesk EAGLE last weekend I had the pleasure of teaching an ‘How to’ Workshop at the Faire making Electronic Kitty Ears. It’s the first iteration of the cat ears so feel free to redesign, remix, reprogram or even reverse engineer anything and everything that I am about to tell you!
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.
