@ohsummit #ohsummit Ryan Fobel DropBot: an open-source platform for lab automation

Summit
Adafruit 2040
DropBot.

DropBot is built around an Arduino-based instrument and is controlled by a custom software interface called Microdrop. Users can activate/deactivate electrodes on the DMF device by clicking their mouse on the webcam video overlay, providing an intuitive interface with real-time visual feedback. Sequences of actuation steps can be pre-programmed and run automatically, enabling fully automated operation. The system is designed as a loosely-coupled set of modules, which means that it is relatively easy to extend the hardware and/or software capabilities.

All components are open-source, subject to theGPL (software code) or Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike licence (hardware designs).


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.
