Design for Manufacturing Summit #17 is This Week in DUMBO, Brooklyn! @whitehouse @DFMForum @mfgday #MFGDay16
Happening the day before the official nationwide Manufacturing Day for 2016, the Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Summit bills itself as “a business development-focused evening conference bringing together product developers, industrial designers, engineers, makers and manufacturers for a more decentralized, leaner manufacturing ecosystem.” Taking place from 3-9PM on Thursday, October 6th, down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass in Brooklyn, talks will include locally-sourced PCBs, automation, and robotics, among other industry topics & trends.
If you’re available last-minute to swing on by or simply want to track it online you can find more details here and here.
Here are a few videos from over the years that include teaser trailers and clips from the summits proper, which take place in several cities around the globe and give a wide view of the range of subjects and topics raised at DFM Summits.
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.
