Les P’s Friday Fun: Adafruit Gemma M0 and Neopixels
Adafruit sponsored PyCon 2018 with a limited edition Gemma M0. Les P went right home and started working on some brilliant light-up projects of his own using the Gemma M0 and some NeoPixel rings. He did an amazingly detailed post about it:
So in this blog post we take a look at using Neopixels with the Gemma M0, nothing too fancy just a good grounding from which we can do great things.
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.
