Last year, Mozilla announcedProject Things and now they’ve announced the release of an OS image for the Raspberry Pi which implements that idea. With the concept of bringing all your home IoT devices under one roof, and providing a web interface to control them, the project is sure to catch the eye of those experimenting with home automation. You will need dongles attached to your Pi to connect to things such as ZigBee modules, lights and that kind of thing, but the software is all ready to go in a if-this-then-that kind of way. You can access the image and find out more from the Mozilla IoT website and learn how to set the system up on their blog.

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.
