@WeAreMakeshop and whiskey making at @TeelingWhiskey in Dublin
We just spent a few days in Dublin and ran across a couple cool makery things.
First, we ran across MakeShop, a part of Trinity College. We stopped in and the staff person was helping two girls build catapults! It felt like an awesome community space. I recommend anyone passing through Dublin check it out.
Later, we visited Teeling Whiskey company to take a factory tour. There we saw first hand the first steps to making whiskey.
After the factory there is an aging process. The process is done off-site to prevent another Dublin Whiskey fire.
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.
