Open any toy closet and you’ll find them. Building blocks from your childhood or your children’s childhood. Be they Lego, Duplo, Mindstorms, Erector, Tinker Toys, or Capsela, they are a staple of creative building that never age. They just might go into hibernation as other things come along (like dating, working, cooking, life). But they are there waiting for discovery!
This new guide takes some Capsela boxes out of the closet to get a new makeover with Adafruit Circuit Playground Express and Crickit, the new Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit.
It turns out that it is SUPER easy to interface Crickit to the motors that come with Capsela kits. The guide builds robotics from a couple of kits and looks at what automation opportunities are possible. The robots are programmed in Microsoft MakeCode which makes it super easy to get started controlling your project in just minutes (and we mean that).
See the full guide here on the Adafruit Learning System!
Adafruit Crickit can automate many classic building sets, get yours today!
