Jean-Luc Wingert Desafio: 100km 1liter Open Hardware car race

The Desafio 100km 1liter race: The challenge is not only to cover the distance of 100 km with only 1 liter of gas (235 MPG) but to compete with other participants in a race using cars developed with open source hardware.

After registering, student teams build a vehicle using Open Hardware and participate in the race in 2014. It will take place in south Brazil on the island of Florianópolis.

Three of the organizers of the Desafio will speak at the Open Hardware Summit: Jean-Luc Wingert, who designed the event, will talk in the “Collective Innovation” session about the mix of collaboration, competition and open hardware in this event.  Rodrigo Magri and Brener Martins will also be present.


Ohsummit 2013-1
Adafruit will be at the Open Hardware Summit — September 6, 2013. Becky Stern, Director of Wearable Electronics will be speaking – Wearables at the intersection of electronics and craft. Adafruit is sponsor and supporter of the Open source hardware association and the Open Hardware summit. Our posts are all here and follow the action on twitter with #ohsummit.


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.
