Community Corner – December 5, 2014: The Featured Projects from this Week


Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project

(Note: Google+ login required.)

Christian Bill Pedersen shared the first version of his robot arm build this week in our community. We think it looks great – thanks for sharing!

So for now the first version of my robot arm is pretty much finished. I have some ideas for the next version, but building this robot is a good starter project to get into the workings of articulated robots. (read more)

Thanks so much to Rickard Dahlstrand for writing in to us about his awesome project.

He shared about the creation of what Cory Doctorow dubbed “the bomb” conference gifts given to key note speakers at Sweden’s Internet Days event. We especially appreciate his Adafruit shout-out!

Unique Keynote Speaker Gifts at Internet Days Created With Adafruit Components:

….The idea was to try to create a gift in an outrageously short time that would somehow put our work with the internet in perspective. I secured ITU’s estimate of how many people are now connected to the internet. Could this be a theme? Maybe a piece where this number was constantly updated, so that all the speakers who inspired us at the Internet Days could have a memory to remind them every day of potentially how many people that are moved by their work. Wouldn’t this be the perfect gift for our keynote speakers?

Today there are almost 3 billion people connected to the internet, that’s 40% of the world’s population and a bit staggering when you think about it. I get a good feeling working with the internet every day that my job can affect so many people. (read more)
