James McCullen has taken inspiration from a 1930s Looney Tunes short film called Hold Anything and created a custom ‘typewriter’ that plays cartoon sound effects. He recorded the effects himself and then copied them to a Raspberry Pi which was then inserted into the casing. By pressing the various buttons and turning dials, he can change what sound effect comes out. See the Fleischer 100 in action below and read more at Raspberry Pi.

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.
