Tour of FabLab Berlin

We arrived in Berlin yesterday from Dublin and I checked for events at makerspaces here. I found FabLab Berlin from Adafruit blog posts so I checked out their events. Tonight they had their weekly open house! Here is what I saw.

After the tour, Philip Steffan from Germany’s Make Magazine gave an update on Maker Faire Berlin 2017.

After the talk we hung out and chatted. I showed off the Adafruit boards I brought with me.

Stefan Hintz showed off his new Girih app that makes it easy to create cool tessellation patterns. He uses these patterns on light up jackets with LEDs.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
