Jinx is a robot that was deemed unsuitable for space work because it overheated and was overly-literal. That didn’t stop it from becoming “friends forever” with Max, one of the youngsters who attends space camp at Kennedy Space Center. This is #MakeRobotFriend at its finest!
There doesn’t seem to be many examples of DIY Jinx robots out there right now… so why don’t you try building one and showing us! Grabbing an Adafruit CRICKIT might be a good place to start!
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.
