NYC’s 34th Hardware Start-up Meetup is Next Week, Will Include Presentations by Two Bicycle Helmet Makers
The 34th Hardware Start-up Meetup will take place next Wednesday, June 1st and will feature four presentations, including by both Brooklyness and MindRider, who are both innovating ways to include sensors and other interactions in bicycle helmets. (You might have already caught a peek at MindRider’s construction and interior wiring on All-American Makers.) It’s interesting to see simultaneous development in the bicycle helmet space – as ridership in NYC increases progress on projects and potential products like these also increase.
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.
