Who doesn’t love LEGO and compatible bricks? Nobody! Except when we accidentally step on them. There are soooo many mechanical things one can make with those ubiquitous bricks, plates, gears, pulleys. Say a 13-meter high LEGO London Tower Bridge…
But what do you do when you want to add LEGO-compatible bricks and parts to your robotics project? This is the bracket you need! Just push onto the body of your DC Gearbox “TT” motor, secure with screws, and it’s ready to adapt to the standard LEGO-compatible parts. So easy, we think this will enable many creative endeavors.
Please note: We didn’t design this bracket and we’re mystified as to why they have bumps on both sides rather than having bumps/holes so it can work better with bricks. That said, this is what we’ve found and its low cost so perhaps it’s still of some use!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
