Thanks to a new History of Game Controllers video by YouTube channel 4096, we now have an idea of how the gamepads of today came to be. The video proves that through years of refinement and innovation, we are now well past clumsy designs and in the age of game controllers with superb ergonomics and innovative forms.
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.
