There are many ways to start! You can draw on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or on a piece of paper. As long as you can get it online and turn it black and white in Illustrator and can print on your laser cutter.
What I did, was found an animated gif online and saved it. When you save a gif, it downloads each frame in a folder.
The whole idea is to make a stop motion image in your film strip to create a movie. As long as your gif, drawing, pictures, etc. is 48 images or more, you’re good to go!
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.
