we’re about to ship the CircuitPlayground version of CIRCKIT soon, FEATHER is on the way, then more… some notes!
…it’s time to try making a micro:bit version! this time we went with a vertical smt connector, needs a little silkscreen touch-up and we’re not sure whether it makes sense to keep a speaker output (there’s no dac on the micro:bit) or replace it with a big/loud buzzer instead. decisions, decisions!
AND you may be asking… will we make a crickit for raspberry pi?? we think given the special shape and power supply requirements it’d do better as a hat. here’s our first draft all routed! biggest change is swapping the analog amplifier for an i2s amp, and two extra seesaw pins will become an extra usb-serial converter.
WHAT IS CRICKIT? A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express that lets you #MakeRobotFriend using CircuitPython, MakeCode, Arduino, etc.. robotics, arts, crafts, audio animatronics, sensors, agriculture/robot farming, physical computing, kinetic sculptures, science experiments, telescope control…
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.
