The Maker Faire Rome crew got a chance to watch the boards being produced. I’d love to check it out in person some day! I really like the interview with Davide Gomba, who does a great job of explaining the Arduino movement and the Maker movement as well. [via Arduino]


The Road to Maker Faire Challenge will award $2,500 to one winner to bring his or her project to World Maker Faire on Sep. 21 & 22, 2013 in New York. Use the funding for materials, transport, or anything else you might need to get to Maker Faire. Applications are due by 11:59pm PT on August 5, 2013.

    It has never crossed my mind that they are actually producing the Arduino’s in Italy. One more reason to stick to those, regardless of the slightly higher price tags.
