Join the editors of MAKE for a live and online conversation on Google+ today about our just-released new issue–Volume 33. The theme of the magazine is “software for makers” so we’ll be checking in with the founders of Makey Makey about their “banana piano” project featured in the magazine. Getting Started with Raspberry Pi authors Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace will be on hand to talk about their must-have book for Rasp Pi enthusiasts, also featured in the the magazine. And there’s more. We’ll be hanging out with Patrick Callahan from the Power Racing Series, a Maker Faire favorite that adorns the cover of the issue. And MAKE technical editor Sean Ragan will be in the house to talk about his CNC joinery project detailed in the magazine.
This will be a jam-packed half hour so be sure to tune in right here at 2pm PST and 5pm EST. If you’ve got questions for any of the participants be sure to post them in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them.
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.
