I asked my Raspberry Pi club what they wanted to create and they said a book that talks to you. Not in the conventional way of reading to you, but in a way to get your attention, to call you over and shout at you. Even better if the book was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography and he tells you to get you to ‘get to the chopper now!’
The first part of the hack is to wire up a Distance Sensor to measure how far away a potential reader is. As they move nearer, Arnie says various phrases to attract their attention.

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.
