The “Get Enough” Robot Spoon #Cereal #Robots @KelloggsUS
Kellogg’s challenged Dominic Wilcox to make breakfast more interesting and fun for families and children going back to school in September. Over the course of 10 weeks he designed 7 inventions and prototypes from a robot spoon to a head worn cereal serving device.
This robot spoon appears to wake up with every spoonful. The LED row of lights gradually illuminate with ever tip of the spoon as it picks up a new spoonful. The eyes gradually wake up and look around. Once you and your spoon are fully energised after eating your breakfast cereal you can carry your spoon with you all day. Over the course of 4 hours the robot spoon gradually goes back to sleep as it loses energy, letting you know it’s time to boost your energy again.
In the future world all inanimate things may have a life. Read more at DominicWilcox.com.

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.
