The first of its kind – open robot building system

 

A great idea from a teacher, two engineers, and a robotics specialist 다운로드. Developed to use in the classroom but developing a following outside of it. The Multiplo robotics system.

It’s easy to assemble, difficult to break and simple to customize:

The concept is that you get a box that has a kit inside 다이아 나랑 사귈래 다운로드. We took care of all the technical details in order for each single part to be compatible. Everything you need to build a robot is inside of the box. But you can also add your own parts…

“Right out of the Box” are the words we like to use about how you should start using your Multiplo Kit 드래곤볼 슈퍼 극장판 브로리 다운로드. There is no need to program, study a wiring diagram or buy tools. No soldering or protoboard needed. You can build a simple robot in about 45 minutes 다운로드.

 

I particularly like the selling point: “robotics should be for everybody”. There are more videos of the prototype robots and three-wheelers 다운로드.

Teaching class with Pinterest

A great idea to bring visuals into the classroom, from the Pinterest blog:

Shaper Studios – create your own surfboard at the first-of-its-kind DIY studio

From the first board-shaping school.

The art of hand-shaping surfboards is being threatened by machines. Shaper Studios is changing that 다운로드. The Mission Valley shaping school is allowing everyday surfers the chance to glass and paint what they ride. We drop in on owner Chris Clark, who says the studio is luring everyone from pros to groms to surf companies and bands like Foster the People 다운로드.

“It’s impossible to compare surfboard shaping to anything else,” says Clark, an SDSU MBA grad student and entrepreneur who is creating a unique blend of retail and DIY manufacturing at Shaper Studios 다운로드.

“Surfing is only half of surfing. The other half is making your own surfboard. When people leave here with a board they can ride, that they make with their own hands, it changes surfing and their experience with the sport forever.”

But what about people who are power-tool-phobic 안드로이드 인터넷 동영상 다운로드?

We are with you the whole time. We just taught a 12-year-old girl to use a planer (a power tool with sharp blades).

So it’s not just a bro-fest 다운로드?

No way! We just did a series with French pro Margaux Arramon-Tucoo. We entered a film of her shaping at a local film fest.

Surfboards are some of the most toxic toys 눈이부시게 8화.

We use Marko recyclable EPS foam. We also use epoxy resins, which are odorless and have zero VOCs. It doesn’t smell in here so you can even glass your board without wearinga mask 삼국지 시리즈 다운로드.

Etsy raises $40 million funding – giving craftrepreneurs an international marketplace

Etsy has closed $40 million of funding from a roster of investors who have been believers in Etsy for a long time 다운로드. I couldn’t be happier to have such a committed set of partners who “get it” along for the next stage.

What do we plan to do with the money we’ve raised 리얼 플레이어 유튜브? Two simple things, really: we plan to grow Etsy into an economic force all around the world and we want to provide more products and services to help sellers succeed and build their businesses on the Etsy platform ps4 스파이더맨. You’ve seen a start in some of these areas — our Etsy in German and French launches…

Looking back, Etsy was quite small by today’s measures — the community sold $7.93 million of goods in September 2008 영화 레플리카 다운로드. We had about 50 employees and we were in an office in downtown Brooklyn with a broken elevator that famously had a sign that read, “You gotta press up to go down.”

Almost four years later, many things have changed 다운로드. We have different offices near the Brooklyn Bridge, a working elevator, almost 300 employees, and last month alone, the community sold about $65 million in goods 공무원 이력서. Each month, 40 million people around the world visit Etsy, with 15 million registered members and 875,000 sellers generating those sales in 150 countries 플래시 플레이어 디버거 다운로드.

(2011 sales – $525 million)

We believe, more than ever, that Etsy can help fundamentally change the way the world works by making it possible for individuals to make and sell things to other people around the globe — a people-powered economy 다운로드.

…we published last fall provides an inspiring blueprint for the better world that we envision:

Decades of an unyielding focus on economic growth and a corporate mentality has left us ever more disconnected with nature, our communities, and the people and processes behind the objects in our lives 다운로드. We think this is unethical, unsustainable, and unfun. However, with the rise of small businesses around the world we feel hope and see real opportunities: Opportunities for us to measure success in new ways… to build local, living economies, and most importantly, to help create a more permanent future 마틸다 자막.
