NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Crickit Powered Minerva Owl Robot @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Build a speaking, glancing, wing flapping animatronic Minerva Owl Robot using a few paper cups, Crickit, Circuit Playground Express, and two servo motors! This new guide in the Learn System shows you how.
Plus, you can use these simple techniques to add motion to all sorts of simple audio-animatronic projects using Crickit and Circuit Playground Express programmed with CircuitPython.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
