I’m cofounder of openMaterials (a collective research project dedicated to gathering and sharing data on uses and production methods of materials), of altLab (Lisbon’s hackerspace), of fabriCulture (a project dedicated to promoting open source digital fabrication and maker culture in general), and a member of NYC Resistor.
I’m a phd candidate at FCSH-UNL and a visiting scholar at ITP-NYU. My academic research is funded by a fellowship from the Science and Technology Foundation of Portugal and the UTAustin|Portugal program.
Also helps run the Open Hardware Summit!
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.
