Biofabricate Body Parts with a Spiderwort CO2 Incubator

Spiderwort is a low cost open source CO2 incubator for mammalian cell cultures. Andrew Pelling originally built his own Arduino powered incubator for from garbage because the commercial ones cost over $10,000. Now Andrew has teamed up with two other scientists from the University of Ottawa to offer a commercial version of his incubator. He has been using his incubator to grow ears made from human DNA on top on slices of McIntosh apples. This illustrates the potential for regenerative medicine.

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.
