Hello World of Robotics with Crickit

You have received your new Adafruit Crickit with Circuit Playground Express. You’d like to quickly grab a servo and speaker and have it do something cool (often with your young one).

What is the equivalent of “Hello World” for robotics? Here it is! This new guide has sample programs in both Microsoft MakeCode and CircuitPython to have you waving Adabot’s arm, lighting up and making sounds in minutes instead of hours or days (!).

This guide has all the steps to help you going. Make your waving Adabot and you’re on your way to even bigger and better projects.


Grab either your Crickit + Circuit Playground Express or your Adabox 008 to make this project today.

See the “Hello World of Robotics with Crickit” guide in the Adafruit Learning System!

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.
