Want to compete in the SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition? Don't forget to sign up!
The SparkFun Autonomous Vehicle Competition (or AVC) is nearly upon us! It takes place June 20th, 2015 at the new SparkFun headquarters. This is a great event that invites people from all over the world to take place in a day of geeky revelry unseen since…well…the last AVC.
This year we’re going to have tons going on – vendors, electronics activities, delicious food/treats – and of course, robotics!
Today, we wanted to remind you that if you want to compete this year, either in the ground competition or the new combat bots competition (or both!), registration is closing SOON – specifically on May 29th. So register now before it’s too late! If you’re thinking of doing the combat bot portion, you can also register day-of the event (and pay an extra $5 charge).
If you’re not into competing, we want you to come watch - so make sure to buy your tickets here. Hope to see you there!
Congratulations to the winner of this month's caption contest!
This week we have the mysterious and amazing SparkFun 'Thing' as well as a new touchscreen kit.
Embedded Micro's new IDE and the Lucid language.
AVC, a part of SparkHacks, has evolved every year since the beginning seven years ago. We are always trying to find ways to make the races more exciting, the side activities more fun and the event more inclusive for the maker and tech community.
You can 3D print a lot of things, but that doesn't mean it's wise.
