CHEERY COLLECTIBLES

Ruby the Red LED – Circuit Playground Plushie: Ruby is the ingenue of the group, and something of a Pollyanna. She is the youngest, the most talkative, and gets easily excited about everything. Ruby has a lot of energy and she’s always ready to go on an adventure. Ruby’s wanderlust sometimes gets her in trouble. Her best friend is Mho, the resistor, who shares her idealism without sharing her urgency or naiveté. Ruby speaks with a super excited young girl’s voice who talks really, really fast. Her catchphrases are “superriffic!”, “let’s go adventurizing!” and other hybrid superlatives. Read more

Make Robot Friend Jigsaw Puzzle: Here at Adafruit, we envision a future where robots, humans, cyborgs, replicants, cylons, and all other types of artificial intelligence and electro-human hybrids will live in absolute harmony. While we love a great fictional dystopia, we certainly wouldn’t want to live in one.

That’s why we made this 48-piece beginner puzzle based on our poster that’s designed by artist Bruce Yan. It features a smiling ADABOT holding hands with two human friends. Along the top reads the simplest robotics maxim we could think of – “Make Robot Friend – Not Robot Enemy.” Read more
