Pt 635

Full Interview: Limor Fried on Open Source Hardware. Spark – An ongoing conversation about technology and culture, hosted by Nora Young… (MP3 here too).

Making wearable computers? A booster for your iPhone made out of a mint box? It doesn’t get more DIY than this. Limor Fried is the founder an lead engineer at Adafruit Industries. She’s one of the leading forces behind the maker movement – people who like to alter technology to better it, or make electronics at home from scratch. And she’s particularly interested in making hardware that is open source.

Tune in!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. Thanks for sharing, your a good interviewee. 🙂

  2. I look forward to listening. CBC’s Spark is an awesome show, and I have a feeling this episode will be especially great.

  3. Great interview!

    Was Limor in Canada for this? If Limor’s ever in Toronto/Ottawa/Montreal in the future, we’d love to set up a speaking engagement at Artengine (www.artengine.ca) — keep in touch!

    Best,
