‘We are Manufacturing’ – the Apple Macintosh Assembly Line Circa 1990 | #ManufacturingMonday #retrocomputing
The video below contains some pretty phenomenal on-site footage from the Macintosh assembly line when it was located in Fresno, California, circa 1990. The footage contains retro robots, user interfaces, and the assembly of printed circuit mainboards from raw components to finished product. Oh yeah, and some pretty wild clothing outfits too! (Pretty wild to think that mainstream consumer computing came about at a time when we all used to dress like that 🙂 )
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.
