NEW GUIDE: Reef-Pi – Part 1: Introduction & Configuration @Raspberry_Pi
This is awesome: a new guide in the Adafruit Learning System by Ranjib Dey describing reef-pi. This Raspberry Pi based system controls the entire environment for a saltwater reef aquarium. The detail to the build and the flexibility in construction will want you to make your own or at least base your next centralized controller off Ranjib’s guide. This is the first in a multipart series coming out, there will be more!
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.
