Update – The return of Quirky? @quirky @benkaufman Auxiliary … aux.space ? @normalears store closed?
Huh, update from our post on Thursday, Ben the former CEO of Quirky has taken down the instagram photos and the Tweet promoting the new company / space “Auxiliary”… Step 1, 2, 3 is still up, 4 was the space (profit is not up yet).
The photo above is from when we walked by, the giant LED sign inside says GO BIG OR GO HOME. The metal ears from Norml are still on the doors and as far as we can tell they’ve kept the super $$$ 3D printers and walled it off to make it a makerspace or something, maybe it’s a “hardware incubator”.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
