Say hello to CRICKIT, Adafruit creative robotics platform. It’s an add-on to the popular Circuit Playground Express, Feather, BBC Micro:Bit and Raspberry Pi.
Make robot friend and learn how to code using Circuit Python, MakeCode and Arduino.
Start controlling motors, servos and solenoids. You also get capacitive touch, signal pins, NeoPixel driver and an amplified speaker output. With CRICKIT, you can extend your dev boards with all the goodies of your microcontroller, but now with a robotics playground.
So get started by checking out the adafruit learning system. And be sure to subscribe for more project ideas!
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.
