Arduino will once again return to Maker Faire Bay Area, taking place May 19th-21st in San Mateo, CA.

As a sponsor of this year’s event, attendees will be able to meet our team, go hands-on with boards and projects, and even buy kits of their own at our pop-up shop at the Arduino booth. Makers can also learn about all of our recent developments as Massimo Banzi takes Center Stage for his annual ‘State of Arduino’ keynote on Saturday at 12:45pm.

Those who come by our booth (#2522) will have the chance to check out our new MKR family, which include the MKR1000, MKRZero, MKR2Uno Adapter, MKR Relay Proto Shield and MKR Proto Shield, along with some IoT demos created in collaboration with Officine Innesto and Fablab Bologna.

Why wait to get home to purchase your boards? The MKR lineup as well as a few special bundles–the MKR Family Developer Bundle, the UNO to MKR bundle and the Young Maker Bundle–will be on sale all weekend long. These kits will be available at a discounted price on-site and on our online store from Friday, May 19th to Sunday, the 21st.

But that’s not all. We’ll be joining our friends at Intel, where we’ll be showcasing Arduino Education’s CTC 101, a modular STEAM curriculum for schools looking to bring technology and programming into their classrooms. There, you’ll also find a preview of some projects built with the Starter Kit 101, the latest collaboration between Intel and Arduino.

Whether you have a question about Arduino, want to speak with our team of experts, or simply want to take home a board, be sure to swing by our booth and store next weekend! For more information and tickets, check out Maker Faire’s official site!

With a shape reminiscent of a Game Gear, revised controls and hardware, Anthony Campusano’s rig looks extremely fun!

As reported on 3DPrint.com, Campusano’s Game Boy-inspired prototype was quite the crowd-pleaser at World Maker Faire in New York. Although wider than it is tall (like most portables to follow), and with many more buttons, this handheld console still screams “original Game Boy.” Perhaps this is because of its color scheme, or even the angle of the buttons.

Hardware consists of several platforms, including an Arduino to handle tasks such as status lights and battery level. The idea was inspired by Florian Renner’s similar concept, though he replaces the ideal of separate game cartridges with an SD card for storage.

I’m a trained architect, though I have industrial designer envy. In terms of electronics, I’m self-taught. When it comes to machine specs, the handheld is based on an Intel Core M. Controls are Teensy-based, and the status lights and battery level, etc. are run from an Arduino. Estimated battery life is about 3hrs +/- depending on the game.

You can see more photos of Campusano’s project on his Facebook page, and read all about it on 3DPrint.com.

Planning on attending Maker Faire Rome this month? We’re currently looking for volunteers to join our team during the event—staffing tables and displays, helping lead one-on-one workshops and demos, and providing technical assistance when necessary.

If you volunteer with us for one shift, you won’t leave empty-handed! You’ll receive a day pass; two days, and you’ll have a ticket for the entire weekend to explore the show. Water and snacks will be provided, of course, along with t-shirt. We’ve also prepared a small gift to show our appreciation when your work is done!

Interested in volunteering at our booth? Please fill out this questionnaire, and we’ll get back to you soon!

  • When: October 14th-16th (Friday-Sunday)
  • Location: Fiera di Roma, Viale Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, 79, 00148 Ponte Galeria RM

Cercasi volontari/e Arduino per Maker Faire Rome

Entra a far parte del team di volontari/e all’Arduino booth presso la Maker Faire di Roma! Stiamo cercando persone appassionate di Arduino che ci aiutino durante l’evento, nello specifico fornendo informazioni ai visitatori, dando supporto e assistenza tecnica durante le demo.

Se farai il volontario o la volontaria per un turno, avrai a disposizione un pass per l’intera giornata, se invece farai turni per più di un giorno avrai il pass per l’interno evento. Sappiamo quanto sia importante il tuo tempo e quanto sia fondamentale il tuo aiuto al nostro booth, per questo motivo siamo felici di offrirti il pranzo, una maglietta e, come segno di riconoscimento, un piccolo regalo alla fine del tuo turno.
