Parallax workshops at the Maker Faire

Our pals at ROBOT Magazine have an overview of the Parallax workshop at the Maker Faire – “If you are interested in up-close demos of robotics technology, the April 22 – 23 Maker Faire, at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds in the heart of Silicon Valley, CA, will be of interest. You’ll see a 17 ft. electric giraffe, a 3 meter-span robot pterosaur and many robot kits and education-based contest exhibitions. Parallax, a keystone robotics comapany that has made microcontrollers and Basic programming available to countless tens of thousands, will be holding workshops on RFID sensors (to detect radio frequency emitting chips), ultrasonic rangefinding and accelerometer sensors.”Link.
