NEW PRODUCT – Building Open Source Hardware: DIY Manufacturing for Hackers and Makers by @pipix #oshw @ohsummit
This hands-on guide from Alicia Gibb gives an incredible run down of the world of open source hardware from history, to meaning, to practice. The first part of Building Open Source Hardware focuses primarily on the emergence and evolution of open source and what the term means – both by definition and in practice.
In the second half, Building Open Source Hardware draws on industry leaders to share proven approaches to various elements of the open source hardware process – from design to documentation – and then dives into hands-on learning and experimentation.
It’s a wonderful beginners’ guide to joining the burgeoning open source movement or a great overview for anyone who’s interested, passionate, or obsessed with OSH!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
