The Archived OSHWA Open Hardware Summit 2016 Livestreams @oshwassociation
From ‘hacker ethics’ to embedded designs ‘dictionaries’ to Kickstarter tips, tricks, and woes (!) for open hardware makers, and more, if you missed last month’s Open Hardware Summit‘s 2016 live streams in real-time, you can still watch them online. (I like to stream them while I work on other projects and ‘listen in,’ digesting the talks while tinkering at my bench, for instance.)
(And thanks Drew for sending me tips about these videos!)
Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
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.
