“This definition has been managed by the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) and expanded in detail and scope. In this episode, I talk with Alicia Gibb, Executive Director of OSHWA and board president, Michael Weinberg, about the growth of open source hardware, its certification program, and the role of open source hardware in the maker response to COVID-19. Michael has also written an article in the current issue of Make: Volume 75, titled “OSHW Turns 10.” Along with Clarissa Redwine, Michael has written the “Open Source Hardware Weather Report 2020,” published in October in association with the Engelberg Center for Innovation Law and Policy at NYU.”
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.
