What is a Cricket?

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. Crickets are small enough to fit into your pocket, and you can use them in a variety of art, science, and music projects.
