Making an IR Controlled Robot #BlitzCityDIY #CircuitPython #Crickit #CircuitPlaygroundExpress #Adafruit
Via Youtube, Blitz City DIY posts a video on a robot in progress:
I’m working on an IR-controlled rover robot just for fun and an excuse to play with the Adafruit Crickit board. I’m also making the IR controller to operate it with an analog joystick. All of it is coded in CircuitPython and there will be more updates as I make more progress.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
