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?


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
