Michael Teeuw has done a fantastic job on this interactive control panel for his son, Enzo. It uses a combination of Arduino and Raspberry Pi along with several other components including replacing LEDs inside buttons with Neopixels, an Adafruit Speaker Bonnet and a rotary encoder with Neopixel circle surround. It’s even got 3D printing and lasercutting, making it a Maker’s dream project. It’s amazing, and you can start reading his blog posts about the project here.

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.
