Celebrate the rise of our robot overlords by building their bartenders! Curious how a proper cocktail is made? Wonder how you can make a machine to do your bidding? Come to the first ever hackathon for building cocktail robots! In this program, you will learn the art of moving fluids from point A to point B in unusual ways! Hopefully the end result is something tasty! The program will be a combination of presentations and hands on, so you can touch hardware and play with code.
What to bring: A computer, and an Arduino, Raspberry Pi or micro controller of your choosing.
What we bring: Sample hardware and fluid pumps, access to Python code.
How much? $10 gets you in the door. $30 gets you your very own peristaltic pump to take home, plus admission.
Plus! While supplies last, each participant will also get a $20 gift certificate donated by our good friends at Adafruit!
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.
