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.

V.I.N.CENT: We have to go!

B.O.B.: Nope, I can’t make it! My main circuits are gone, my anti-grav-systems blown, and both backup systems are failing.

V.I.N.CENT: You *can* make it!

B.O.B.: It’s no use, V.I.N.CENT! My useful days are finished! But part of me goes with ya. You’ll never be obsolete.

[starts to shut down]

B.O.B.: Carry on the tradition. We’re the best…

[shuts down and falls back]

V.I.N.CENT: [V.I.N.CENT’s eyes slowly look down at his comrade in arms, then turns towards the probe ship, turning his head backwards to look at B.O.B. once more as he leaves]
