B.O.B. robot made with CRICKIT #MakeRobotFriend @adafruit #adafruit
This robot (video) was made with Adafruit CRICKIT #MakeRobotFriend using 2 standard servos, NeoPixel strand, thin 8 ohm speaker. CRICKT is the low-cost “made a robot out of anything” board from Adafruit, uses CircuitPlayground, code – CircuitPython (MAKE coverage).
The Black Hole – Disney
Released: December 21, 1979
The U.S.S. Cygnus is perched precariously at the edge of a black hole – the vast, empty nothingness where space and time end. Anything that crosses its border enters a universe of the complete unknown. A story of robots and humanoids, human genius and madness, and a spectacular descent into nature’s ultimate mystery – The Black Hole.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
