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!
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.
