PicoCricket  -arty electronics for kids…

Picocricket3 SmallI saw these last week at the Exploratorium, and they’re amazing – “A Cricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin, light up, and play music. You can plug lights, motors, sensors, and other devices into a Cricket, then program them to react, interact, and communicate. For example, you can make a cat and program it to purr when someone pets it. Or you can make a birthday cake and program it to play a song when someone blows out the candles. The PicoCricket Kit is similar to the LEGO MINDSTORMS robotics kits. MINDSTORMS is designed especially for making robots, while the PicoCricket Kit is designed for making artistic creations with lights, sound, music, and motion.” [via] Link.
