Double-fisted media blitz

I’m honored to be mentioned in two great publications this month (available online or on the news-stands very soon)

One is Technology Review (which among other things is the MIT alumni magazine). Kate Green writes about Adafruit & myself along with my most-excellent peers & fellow alumni Bunnie (Chumby) & Eric W. (Instructables) on a good review of the current state of open source hardware. Read all about it here

Next is WIRED magzine, where Clive Thompson writes about Arduino, its growing popularity and “How to make $$$ with open source hardware”

I’m excited to see that open source hardware is getting more and more coverage – I have definitely seen a big increase in OSH lately and I’m sure more press will get some of the talented engineers out there thinking about how to publish their next project.

Want to learn more about open hardware? Make has a big collection of posts, slides, videos etc both from myself and others


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.
