The best of Open Source Hardware. Legendary software. All for you.
Today, we’re launching a monumental challenge to celebrate the newMKR1000! It’s packed with WiFi and all the smarts of the Arduino Zero, and true to its name, this board is going out free to one thousand makers all over the world.
With Adafruit, Atmel, Arduino, and Microsoft, we’re bringing you tickets to Maker Faire – plus $500 in electronics to build something that truly stands out. Win one of the top three prizes, and you can make and share that project you’ve always itched for. Something that makes a statement to the world about you.
We’ve partnered with Adafruit, Atmel, Arduino and Microsoft to bring you our best Maker contest yet! We’re calling all inventors, artists, makers and developers to show the world what you can create with Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft Azure and the new Arduino MKR1000 (US only) and Genuino* MKR1000 (Outside US) or the Arduino UNO. Earn bonus points by tapping into the power of Microsoft Azure cloud to capture, analyze, and visualize your data with Azure IoT Suite, Azure IoT Hub, Stream Analytics andMachine Learning.
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.
