Shinola: Bringing watchmaking back to America #Manufacturing Monday
maker.me has a great piece on Shinola watches and their quest to prove that anything can be made in America.
Inside today’s factory, each Shinola timepiece is made by hand, including full assembly of the Argonite movements that power the watches. Shinola also designs and manufactures bicycles, leather goods, journals, and pet accessories. The company stands for skill at scale, works to preserve American craftsmanship, and celebrates the beauty of industry.
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.
