#ADA11 – Alicia Gibb – Formerly of BugLabs – Open Hardware Summit co-chair…

I work at Bug Labs in New York City. It is a start-up where we make a Linux-based, open source prototyping platform. I recently was awarded an NSF SBIR grant which is what I’m currently working on. I’ve published BUG-inspired papers at TEI and in Linux Journal. I also co-chair the Open Hardware Summit with Ayah Bdeir.

I attended Pratt Institute and graduated with my Masters of Science in Art History and a second Masters of Information & Library Science. My concentration for Art History is New Media Art, specifically flexible programming platforms in robotics and art. While in school, I curated two New Media Art show at NYCResistor, one called Art of the Game and one based on my thesis called Art, Design and the Arduino: A Lineage. In Information & Library Science, my interests were and in many ways still are user-centered design, and usability. Information Science led me to concepts such as source code and the Internet of Things.


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.
