My first project for +littleBits has just, um, "dropped."  Best place to see it is prolly on Instructables, but there's also a goofy video I made on YouTube, if video is more your thing: The Don't-Leave-Home-Without-It Machine

I think whilst it may be priced a bit high, I'm sure we will see some innovation.

3D printing experts: so I'm trying to use a Printrbot Simple Metal to print a part that has a 140mm x 140mm flat base, mostly 5mm high, with some extrusions from it that get up to 40mm high (see rendering). After maybe 15 layers of printing, I see that the corners start to curl. In these photos, I stopped the job as soon as I noticed. Other times, I let it go, and the prints looked awful. So I know there can be a lot of things that affect this, but I'm wondering what you'd focus on first? I'm using blue painter's tape on the platform, perhaps it's not working well for print adhesion? Should I wipe it down with acetone first? Or maybe I need to focus on print settings? Prints with a smaller base come out perfectly, so I'm thinking I need to focus on making the build platform more sticky. What do you think? Thanks.

Here's my first look at the new Raspberry Pi Model A+. It's $20, and it just fits in an Altoids tin.
This morning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation took the wraps off of their newest creation, the Raspberry Pi Model A+. Just as the original Model A was a stripped-down version of the Model B, the new A+...

Since the +Raspberry Pi Compute Module dev kit has two camera inputs, you can do some cool stereoscopy with it! Looking forward to trying this out myself: Perhaps remote telepresence with an Oculus Rift?

See you all there next weekend!
 
It's wonderful to see the program shaping up for the East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland next Sunday.  As I wrote recently on twitter, this is the Maker Faire that Goldilocks prefers:  Not too big. Not too small. Just right.

You need a full weekend to get through one of the big Maker Faires properly.  This one you can enjoy in an afternoon (though you may find yourself wanting to stay the full day!)

We had about 5000 people last year and over 170 Makers/Exhibitors/Performers, so come early!
