One hundred thousand Original Prusa printers. Well, actually over 130,000at the time of writing this article! I would have never imagined that this is where we would be in just a few years. It’s no longer just me and Michal working in a small basement. The Prusa Research team now has 433 people! And I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of them for contributing to our common goal. I have a great deal of respect for the entire team – we wouldn’t be where we are right now without you!
Do you wonder where it all began? Why did I buy my first 3D printer? And how many tons of Haribo bears we shipped in total? For the past 6 months, we’ve been working on a short documentary, mapping everything from my first Mendel to the current stage of the company.You’ll see a ton of things we’ve never shown before – from powering the entire building with a diesel generator when our farm blew the building’s fuses, to the complex testing machines we’ve come up with for QC.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
