In this project we used BOSON starer kit with our micro:bit to build our smart fan. The Boson Started kit for micro:bit is designed by DFRobot. There are many electronic components in this kit, which are looks like bricks. Besides being compatible with LEGO bricks, user can also fix the components on metal plates.The magnetic base under Boson bricks enable user to assemble and disassemble easily. With the special design on the circuit interface, children without circuit background can easily plug and use it. For more information about the boson kit for micro:bit, please refer to this website (https://www.dfrobot.com/blog-630.html).
The main hardware in this article consists of LEGO bricks, please refer the following picture. You can design your own fan, but please make sure there are enough room to put on four BOSON components, including sensors and motors.

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.
