Let’s Get Digital: New Models for Making @ NY Design Week 2012
Ladyada on the panel!
We’re witnessing a paradigm shift: design innovation and experimentation is moving from research labs to the shelves. Consumers can increasingly influence, generate and spend their ways into the roles of researcher, inventor and funder. “Let’s Get Digital: New Models for Making” will bring together thought leaders from the New York City’s design, fabrication and business worlds to discuss how new technologies – like personal 3d printers— and ways of doing business – like kickstarter launches and open source— are changing the relationship between consumers, designers and producers and redefining the City’s role in production. Panelists will include Limor Fried of Adafruit Industries, John Jacobsen of Quirky, Dustyn Roberts of Dustyn Robots, Benedetta Piantella of GROUND Lab and Duann Scott of Shapeways.
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.
