Photos from MakerBot Booth at CES 2013 #3dthursday
The CES crew from MakerBot sent us over some photos (full flickr set here) from their CES 2013 experience to share for #3dthursday, along with this note:
Last week, MakerBot traveled to CES for the fourth time and went bigger and better than ever before. No less than thirty MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers were running at any given time. The booth was packed with people the entire show with many turning out to see the new MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer and learn about the latest changes to Thingiverse. The booth also featured several amazing pieces by artist Cosmo Wenman.
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.
