Many of you were with us last October in Rome for the European Maker Faire together with more than 500 makers from all over the world! The event was massive and 90 thousands people visited the booths, the workshops and the presentations taking place in those days.
To celebrate the amazing moments we created a series of short videos showcasing the use of Arduino in projects hosted during the Faire. Our crew explored the whole exhibition and talked with a lot of makers presenting a project with Arduino inside. We asked them four simple questions:
- What have you built?
- Which problem does your project solve?
- Why did you use Arduino as a controller
- How long did it take to make it?
On saturday 15th of November we are going to be in London for the Elefant&Castle Mini Maker Faire at the London College of Communication. We’ll have a booth with some projects made with Arduino boards and demos to test our new Arduino Zero. You can visit our booth located in The Street area of the First Floor (check the Map). (more…)
