Michael Weinberg is putting together an Open Hardware event in DC to introduce open source hardware to our congresspeople. The one-day event will be held on April 20th, 2012 at the Rayburn House Office Building Room 2322 in Washington DC. There will be two panels followed by demos. The event is free, though I’m sure Michael wouldn’t mind a donation or two to help out. Bring your project and yourself!
Great line up!
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.
