Check Out All the Entries in the @littleBits Droid Inventor Kit Competition | #StarWars #InventorsWanted
Submissions to the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit Competition are now closed and judges are reviewing the applications, which you too can view online at their microsite:
With 36 pages of entries at 9 entries per page that’s a little more than 300 droids that didn’t have documentation online previously 🙂 And one of the great aspects of making your own droid is getting to name it – some of my faves include The Party Time Droid, Catcarebot, Coffee Maid, as well as classic droid-ish names likes R2BCalm, Fire2-D2, and so-on.
Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
