I primarily use Perl for most of my Raspberry Pi projects, and with a growing number of quality Pi modules on CPAN and an upcoming book on Perl and Raspberry Pi programming, I expect Perl’s popularity on the Pi to increase. That being said, I was bored, and wanted to use some left over components I had laying around to make my own home security system from scratch. It’s in it’s early stages right now, and I will be adding more features later.

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.
