FITC (Future. Innovation. Technology. Creativity) Toronto is this weekend! Check out the details here.

What: FITC Toronto

Where: Hilton Toronto – 145 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON Canada , M5H 2L2

When: April 27-April 29

The journey begins here
FITC is the intersection between Creative Technologists, Designers, Developers and all-around awesome thinkers from various innovative industries across the globe. They converge every year in Toronto to connect, challenge, inspire, and to experience the cutting edge in design and technology.

This year we have 90 amazing presenters from around the world covering design, creativity, and technology, including talks about biohacking, remote-controlled cockroaches, a 98-year-old digital artist, the leading edge in neuroscience tech, an artist who offers professional kidnapping – and that’s just a fraction of this years talent.

Join us at FITC Toronto for…

Three full days, plus one optional day of pre-festival workshops
Over 90 presentations and panels
Over 1200 attendees from around the world
Making connections at the parties and evening events
The FITC Awards 2014

Eugene Andruszczenko, technology innovator and Adafruit customer, will be speaking. Go see him! And check out one of his latest project photos below.

Euguene describes the project as: “One of our new features is the inclusion of the Neo Pixel 16x Ring into out
joysticks”

There are loads of projects I work on. Most of them have something to do with interfacing devices that weren’t meant to be interfaced with 🙂

Sparky Jr. has been an on again off again ongoing project. It’s a pretty basic RGB LED controller for gaming enthusiasts. There are no additional parts (like drivers or ic chips) for controlling RGB LEDs, so it’s pretty basic to get into for anyone.
