NEW PRODUCT – Open source Upgrade stickers! You hacked, modded or made something BETTER with Open source! Adafruit offers a fun and exciting stickers to celebrate achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share. Designed by Tyler Cooper from Coobro, a great open-source hardware company!
The greatest part of making, sharing and selling open source hardware is what happens after it gets out in the world We are constantly surprised by the things people do with open-source products and projects. Makers email pictures of hardware hacks, and post code that takes devices in directions we had never dreamed of or thought possible. We know are not alone in this, and have a strong feeling that anyone who has released open source hardware has spent time digging through web searches and forums looking for projects that have used their hardware in unique ways. We want to celebrate these open source hardware hacks and upgrades. Anytime someone modifies a piece of open source hardware and adds to either the code, or the hardware, we will attach one of these badges of honor to the maker (and project!).
2 stickers, each about 2″ x 2″ (50mm x 50mm). Artwork can be downloaded here.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
