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”.
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.
