15 Years of SparkFun – News – SparkFun Electronics.

It’s been 15 years since SparkFun started building crazy stuff. Let’s take a long moment and look back to see how it started. Perhaps from history we can see where we might be headed. I enjoy telling a good story, and you’ve got me wading through memory lane. Grab a tasty beverage and have a read…

Read more. Good read.

I think I started writing about Sparkfun about 12 years ago, it’s hard to find the first post on MAKE. I can’t find my first posts on Hackaday about Sparkfun either, but they’re somewhere. I tried to find a wayback page for the sparkfun site from 2003 and but doesn’t look like it archived it back then.


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.
