Adafruit 2019 4328

Buying a sealed, perfect box that does only what it’s supposed to isn’t our idea of tech. We like to take things to bits, to see if we can improve them, or (more often) to see whether we can put them back together again without having any mysterious extra screws. Things are made to be unmade, improved, learned from. That’s a philosophy that’s guided all our favourite makers, including Adafruit, Evil Mad Scientist, Pimoroni, and most likely anything else that you’ll ever see in these pages.

That’s also the philosophy behind the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). This group exists to give us all as makers a middle way between big-bucks monetisation and creations never seeing the light of day, that we believe suits the small tinkerer perfectly. They’re doing a good job; now, more than ever. We spoke to Alicia Gibb, executive director of OSHWA, to find out what they’re doing, why we need them, and how much it costs to be an inventor nowadays.

Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in!

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, 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.
