ToorCamp 2016 Experiences

Last week I had the pleasure to attend ToorCamp 2016 and made a short video to highlight the cool stuff I saw and experienced.  ToorCamp is a biennial ‘American hacker camp’ that’s modeled after events like the Chaos Communication Camp in Europe.  If you ever have the chance to attend ToorCamp I highly recommend it!


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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

  1. Looks like my first attempt at this got swallowed… anyhow, the Hackerboat’s hackaday.io page is the website my name links to above. Not only are the status lights Adafruit products, we’re also using Adafruit’s 9-Axis IMU board for heading information at the Ultimate GPS Breakout for location sensing. Great products all around, and some of the most trouble-free components on the boat.

  2. One more thing — the TSV Disputed Right of Way’s brain is a Beaglebone Black (that I may have bought from Adafruit), not a Raspberry Pi. I feel extra-compelled to point this out because Beagleboard,org was kind enough to give us some free development hardware.

  3. Great video! Since I took almost no pictures, this is excellent to entice my friends to come to the next one 😀
