HackSpace Magazine is the monthly magazine for the modern maker! Issue #3 highlights Scrap Heap Hacking, a perfect complement to Adafruit Crickit boards and our Trashbots!
From the editor, Ben Everard,
“We live in a throw-away society, and it’s destroying the planet … As makers and hackers, we’re in a position to change this. This month we’re taking a look at how to move in the opposite direction and reuse parts from scrapped products. This isn’t so much a skill as a state of mind. If you stop seeing old products as something to dispose of and start seeing them as the parts for your next project, you can save money, save the planet, and make some truly unique creations.”
This issue is bootloaded (ok, forgive us) with tons of DIY projects (how to make your own leather belt or laser trip-wires for an indoor drone racing game!), an interview with the co-founders of Farm Urban, tutorials on 3D printing or using the ESP8266 for an infrared rangefinder, and so much more!
We’ve got a bunch left over from an AdaBox giveaway – so get your copy today!
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.
