Dan the Geek (aka Dan the Magic Man) sent in his project for displaying crayons in a novel way. The model can be ordered through Shapeways for a hefty sum but might also inspire you to consider new ways for displaying all the things you otherwise store in bins and boxes.
This design came about quite by accident. I was looking at ways to reduce the printing cost by reducing the amount of material without compromising the model’s integrity. The fully enclosed hole for each crayon was trimmed in the front and back, leaving the crayon exposed but it still maintained a firm grip on the crayon.
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.
