While your homemade computer will never reach the aesthetic greatness of the latest [insert your favorite computer manufacturer here] model, as shown in this cyberdeck build, it’s very possible to construct a capable machine yourself. Instead of going for a sleek thin design, this laptop is modeled after computers described in Neuromancer and similar works of cyberpunk fiction, along with laptops from the early ’90s. The body is printed in four sections, meant to slot together to produce enough room for the computing components.
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.
