Do Makers Propose a More Open Source Future? from @pbsideachannel

The latest video from PBS’ Idea Channel is a fantastic exploration of maker and open source ideology that’s well worth a watch.  The main point raised is that the maker movement brings transparency to our increasingly complex and closed world of technology.  This is a powerful idea to remember when you’re tinkering with a project or product, as the video says you’re being an ‘investigative reporter for the interior of objects.’  Check out the full video to learn more.

Also keep an eye out for shots of some Adafruit projects and products during the video.  In particular Noe and Pedro’s Portable Raspberry Pi case makes an appearance around 9:25 into the video.  Post in the comments other fun stuff you see in the video!

Do Makers Propose a More Open Source Future?


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.
