Ever wonder what you’re missing when you blink? It turns out it could be a lot as it has been estimated we lose six seconds of information every minute just by blinking. This means if we sit through a 2 ½-hour movie, we will have missed 15 minutes of that film (longer if it’s Star Wars), according to University of Tokyo researchers. The good news is, we no longer have to miss those moments, thanks to some students from the University of Bremen in Germany, who have designed a wearable camera that takes pictures when we blink.

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.
