BREAKING NEWS – There is now an Intel based Arduino – Galileo. Follow all the action on twitter right now, live from Maker Faire Rome. Intel® Galileo – Intel® Galileo is the first in a line of Arduino-compatible development boards based on Intel architecture.
Intel® Quark SoC X1000 – The Intel® Quark SoC X1000, the first product from the Intel® Quark technology family of low-power, small-core products. Intel® Quark technology will extend Intel architecture into rapidly growing areas – from the Internet of Things to wearable computing in the future.
On October 3, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich spoke at the first European edition of the Maker Faire in Rome, which is described as the largest exhibition in the world dedicated to innovation, creativity and enterprise. Maker Faires celebrate the “maker” movement and lovers of the “do it yourself” spirit. Intel is a main sponsor of Maker Faire Rome and supports the maker movement because it aligns with the company’s long-term support of STEM education and innovation both inside and outside of the classroom.
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.
