ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP


We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.

X0x2005

The first 2 orders at Adafruit… now up to 2,161,166 orders

When Adafruit started in 2005 we sold 2 open source hardware kits, the x0xb0x and MiniPOV2. You can still find the files to build these two projects at ladyada.net/make/minipov and ladyada.net/make/x0xb0x

I asked Ladyada if we had any of the original orders from about 15 years ago, turns out we have exactly 2 we kept for historic reasons – they are some of the first orders for each of these two kits – that I scanned.
