I’ve been purchasing products (or as my wife says, “toys”) from Adafruit for three years now and have NEVER had a failed part or manufacturing defect with anything. The customer service has been nothing but outstanding and the information made available to customers in the form of code, tutorials and projects is icing on the cake.
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.
