Cover image for PicoCrab 2


Watch the associated video here:

Picocrab was a project I created a while back; it used a PCA9685 board along with a Raspberry Pi Pico. The robot had no space inside for a battery and no power board either. I abandoned that design as the Fusion 360 model was a bit of a mess and needed a lot of work.

PicoCrab 2.0

I recently purchased the Elecfreaks Wukong 2040 board for the Raspberry Pi Pico. Its a great board for robotics projects - you will find my review of it here.
