DIY: Threat or Opportunity
2010 IDSA International Conference
This is sure to be a thought provoking discussion with a different insight and perspective on the DIY movement that will challenge your perception of DIY and its relevance to you!
DIY Design: Embracing the Good with the Bad
From innovations in production techniques and materials, to copycats and retail sales, Grace will examine and evaluate both the upside and downside of the revived do-it-yourself movement in design. DIY design is both friend and foe, forcing designers to think about their creative process, material usage, sustainability and price point. From this revived interest in handmade goods, the design industry as a whole can learn ways to improve their work and counteract the growing competition from less-experienced artists and designers.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
