New Guide: John Park’s Tightrope Unicycle Bot @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Adabot has always wanted to join the circus — and you can help Adabot fulfill this dream by building a tightrope riding, balanced unicycle bot by following this new guide!
This project uses the Circuit Playground Express for brains, and the Crickit platform to provide the power to the gearbox DC motor.
You’ll make a cardboard chassis, frame, and armature, then dress it up with Adabot costuming. Code it in CircuitPython and Adabot’s ready to ride the wire!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
