Review: What Can You Do with an Adafruit Crickit? @ElectromakerIO #Crickit #Robots

A nice review on the new Adafruit Crickit robotics board was posted yesterday by Christian Cawley on Electromaker.

What Can You Do with an Adafruit Cricket explores using the Creative Robotics and Interactive Construction Kit from Adafruit – Crickit for short – and the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express.

Christian writes:

Crickit is powered by seesaw, Adafruit’s own I2C-to-whatever bridge firmware. Just two data pins are required to control the inputs and outputs on the Crickit, which are all powered by 5VDC (no support for mixed voltage). As such, any 5V servos, motors, relays, etc., can be used with the Crickit. But what might you do with it? One idea is to use the Force…

He reviews a number of Adafruit Crickit demonstrations, including resurrecting a 1985 Nintendo R.O.B. robot.

Crickit is Adafruit’s new robotics controller. It’s an add-on to Circuit Playground Express that lets you #MakeRobotFriend using CircuitPython, MakeCode, or Arduino, to build robotics, arts, crafts, audio animatronics, sensors, agriculture/robot farming, physical computing, kinetic sculptures, science experiments, telescope control and much more!
