This tutorial serves as an introduction to soft circuitry. Through application, you will gain an understanding of the working properties of electronic-textile (e-textile) materials such as conductive fabric and conductive thread. By constructing a functional soft circuit with e-textile material, you will learn how a simple circuit operates, identify and understand the role of different electronic components, and consider possibilities for further application of and experimentation with soft circuits.
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.
