Digi-Key, Mouser and EPILOG – cool maker companies in April’s WIRED
We’re reading through the entire April WIRED and there are 3 companies that advertised in this “DIY / HOW-TO” issue that many of you are familiar with from the maker world. Digi-Key, Mouser and EPILOG. We use all 3 of these companies and we think it’s cool they spent their advertising dollars for the DIY issue filled with so many cool maker companies. Digi-Key has an excellent interview with Bre Pettis from Makerbot as well which is part of their ad, they’re celebrating 3D printing, open source hardware and one of our favorite hackers – Bre! Mouser also kicked off their new mobile version, you can try it here m.mouser.com
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.
