Special ASK AN ENGINEER 1/14/12 – A tour of the Arduino factory!
Ladyada, Kevin and PT did a tour of the Arduino factory in beautiful Torino, Italy. We took many photos, some videos and more. On this weekend’s ASK AN ENGINEER we will go photo by photo (and video) and talk about all the wonderful machines, tools and people that make the Arduino. Tune in this Saturday at 10pm ET 1/14/12.
We’d like to also thank everyone at the Arduino team and supporting company’s for being so kind and generous during our stay.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

Very nice, hope you had a great time, and thanks for sharing! Look forward to Saturday.
Bravo! Looking forward to the show.
Thats a lotta a spaghetti!
Any word on the 32-bit Due?
I wonder if you can make money in Open Source unless you actually own a PCB factory like them?
@Liam.ada – there isn’t a date or announcement from the arduino team, when there is we will cover it here immediately.
@Miros2424 – adafruit (and most open source) companies do not have a PCB factory and we/they make money.
Any word on the Leonardo?
@mike – we saw some finished ones, they’re awesome!
awesome, nice to see this, thanks
adafruit in italy!? in cremona!? wow!
you are so close to me… let me know if you will go to naples!
fate tante foto!
Here http://twitter.com/arduino on the Arduino twitter page, they said on Dec. 19, 2011 that the Due would be coming out in beta in January this year, so any day now until that happens, if those are still the plans anyway.
