October 13 through 15th at the Portland Convention Center.
Day passes are between $25 to $60 for the weekend.
Selling Arduboy FX and having samples of the Mini Prototypes and the 3d printed cases available for inspection. Hope to have some other special things to show off there too!
Arduboys will be on SALE at the event! No shipping fee AND an additional $5 off! $49 for an Arduboy FX! Get out of town! No seriously, get out of town and come visit Portland it’s (probably) not as dangerous as you saw on the news!*
*Actually it’s getting better but still pretty messed up
If you are in the Portland area come by and say hi! @tuxinator2009 is going to be there too helping out!
Colored paper tends to be pretty coarse but origami paper is really smooth. Not sure if they make big sheets of them though. Maybe thin cardboard could work too? Perhaps you could print out the shapes on paper and then after you cut them out, throw on some paint. I think it’ll be smooth that way.
Someone on the Pokitto site has made a big MDF version of the Pokitto with a PC screen built into it and a Nintendo controller (or something) hanging off it. They take it to conferences. Looks great all painted up.
Of course! Like I mentioned before I’m already behind on promoting that on the front page of the website. People making their own hardware is a huge reason why Arduboy is what it is. It reinforces the educational side of the platform as well.
I view the mini having come from that ecosystem.
The odds of someone looking at the DIY possibility and being like “oh yeah I guess I’ll make one of these instead of buying it” is pretty low, especially considering it will be on sale
But actually, could be funny to hand out instructions on how to make your own! Or sell them for $5!
