Bullduino Unboxing

I recently applied for the 2012 Red Bull Creation contest at http://www.redbullusa.com/creation

Yesterday I received my official Bullduino board so I thought I would share a few photos. The box didn’t include any instructions, so I guess if you can’t figure it out you don’t deserve to be in the contest. 🙂

Two bulls on a circuit board, first time I’ve seen that:

Seattle Mini Maker Faire presentation

Welcome to Seattle Mini Maker Faire
Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation at the 2012 Seattle Mini Maker Faire on Sunday.
The presentation was an overview of creating a printed circuit board using the KiCAD suite of electronic design automation tools.

Here is a PDF of the slides I used for the presentation:

Also a big thanks again to DorkbotPDX PCB, Midnight Maker and Seeed Studio for the PCB samples, they were a big hit!
