Update: No power or net access 11/2/2012 Ask an Engineer canceled, show-and-tell canceled #sandy
Pictured above Ladyada navigating up and down the stairs without power at home office and later riding bicycle checking in on our factory without power in SoHo, NYC. Empty loading docks 🙁
Adafruit is still without power today, it is estimated that it will be back on within the next couple days – but there are a lot of unknowns and damage to the area(s) we hope to get our staff back in once the power is back on and the building is cleared to be safe.
We are not shipping today, but once we get power and net access we’re going to work 24/7 to get all orders out. We are working with the building management, USPS and UPS to resume shipping the moment it’s possible.
The latest from Con Edison“ALL of lower/mid Manhattan is expected to be back by Saturday.”
Ask an Engineer and show-and-tell is canceled for Saturday 11/3/2012. If we happen to get power and net we’ll broadcast us shipping and making products. We had a few new product launches that are now delayed, but we’ll get back to them the first possible moment.
Thank you again for all the support, concern and patience. We will keep updating. The customers, community, partners and everyone out there are amazing, thank you thank you so much.

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.
