Maker Faire Rome 2018 - An Overview

The Kitronik crew, consisting of myself (Ben) and company director Geoff, were fortunate enough to be asked to join our distributors at Digi-Key at Maker Faire Rome 2018.

Arriving in Rome we were first impressed not only with the history and beauty of the city but also with the massive amount of advertising there was for Maker Faire Rome 2018. Termini station...

All Roads Lead To Rome Maker Faire 2018

All Roads Lead To Rome Maker Faire 2018

Today, in particular, it is the A453. This last week we have been preparing for an appearance alongside giants (I would have said Titans, but that's more Greek than Roman) of the Maker World DigiKey and the micro:bit foundation at Maker Faire Rome. Surveying the remnants of our show gear I decided we need a new centrepiece for the display, that shows the best of Kitronik, what we do, what we sell and who we are as a group of committed and detail-obsessed makers. I also decided it needed to pack... Read more

Inventors Kit Fan Controlled ZIP LED Ring

Inventors Kit Fan Controlled ZIP LED Ring

As a fun demonstration piece for shows, we created an interactive fan controlled ZIP LED experiment on the Inventors Kit that uses a motor as an input device. When someone blows on the fan, the microbit reads the EMF created by the motor and rotates the LEDs of a ZIP ring relative to its speed. This tutorial shows how to create and code this circuit using a motor as an input device with our Inventors Kit, ZIP LEDs Add-On Pack, and a BBC microbit. This is a fun take on one of the experiments in... Read more
