A party for hacking, discovering, and sharing hardware
Teardown is an event put on by Crowd Supply in association with Make+Think+Code @ PNCA. You can think of Teardown as live-action Crowd Supply, but with fewer cardboard boxes and packing peanuts. We’ll be bringing together hardware aficionados from around the world to celebrate, inspect, create, and, of course, tear down hardware. There will be long-time Crowd Supply creators and backers, as well as people we’re meeting for the first time. There will be hardware, art, food, drink, puzzles, workshops, tutorials, talks, music, field trips, and friends. Most of all, there will be ideas and projects to explore and inspire. We hope you’ll be there too!
Just the Facts
Who? Anyone interested in hardware: engineers, designers, artists, students, teachers…
What? A three-day line up of talks, workshops, demos, installations, and puzzles
When? Friday – Sunday, May 11 – 13, 2018
Where? Beautiful Portland, Oregon on the campus of the Pacific Northwest College of Art
Why? Shipping great hardware to you is rewarding, but we miss seeing you in person
How? With lots of help from our friends, including our partner, Make+Think+Code @ PNCA
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.
