Adafruit’s Top Ten Photos and Videos of 2016 #AdafruitTopTen
We think photographer Andrew Tingle‘s beautiful photos and videos are as much a part of the Adafruit brand as our boards, kits, and tutorials. Here are our photo team’s top 10 photos and videos of 2016. Check out our Instagram, YouTube, and Flickr to check out more of Andrew’s incredible work!
1. Adabot made out of a variety of boards, components and parts.
2. Wafers! These semiconductors caught our eyes and we just had to capture their beauty on video.
3. Someone in our fabrication department made a tower of headers so beautiful that we could not resist a photo shoot.
10. Our fabrication department tests every board we make before they go out to you. Some of our testers needed an upgrade… a Raspberry Pi upgrade! The fabrication department was thrilled and so was the photo team.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
