@ohsummit #ohsummit – Matthew Borgatti. How Open is Your Source
Matthew Borgatti. How Open is Your Source, talk was about sharing beyond just the files we share in OSHW –
My name’s Matthew Borgatti. I have done a lot of things: building movie monsters, prototyping, teaching, graphic design, illustration, product design, and fashion. I’m currently working on a gigantic mobile pipe organ and open source methods for making soft robots.
I love fine craftsmanship and rapid prototyping. I believe that the right tools applied in the right way can marry these two ideals together into some powerful designs. I want to explore the dwindling divisions between the digital and analog worlds and produce ideas that can survive on their own in the memeplex.
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.
