NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Cam Follower Automaton @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
This new Learn Guide, John Park’s Cam Follower Automaton will show you how you can make this fun automaton that jumps up and down with cardboard, Crickit, Circuit Playground Express, and MakeCode.
Cams and followers are fundamental mechanisms to convert rotation to linear motion with interesting patterns. Different cam shapes produce different results.
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.
