GLAMOUR – 35 Women Under 35 Who Are Changing the Tech Industry by Donna Fenn photo by JOÃO CANZIANI.

Limor Fried, 35, founder of the electronics and tutorial company, Adafruit
Ever want to make your own mini robot? Fried’s company, Adafruit, makes that possible, selling open-source hardware kits to let tech gurus or everyday hobbyists DIY their own products. It all started when Fried made her own MP3 player and put the how-to on her website. “People kept emailing me, saying, ‘I saw your project, and I want to build that too.
