As electronics are manufactured, the reels that the components come on slowly unspool, creating patterns with the spent tape that are variously chaotic and beautiful. We caught our Pick-n-Place machine generating this pretty parallel arrangement while manufacturing the DotStar RGB LED pixel matrix. Get yours while they’re still in stock!
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.
