BatchPCB unveils a cool new feature today - a marketplace! Plus, a really cool project out of Denmark!
BatchPCB is SparkFun's sister site where prototypers can create single-run (or more if you want) versions of their prototype boards. Today, they unveiled a really exciting new feature - the Marketplace!
Basically, it works like this. If you have a design you think other people might benefit from that you want to sell, you can put it on the site for whatever price you think is fair. As people buy your board, you'll earn money! Pretty straight-forward! Right now, it's only open to US Residents and there are a few rules (such as the board has to be your own design, not someone else's). Check out the BatchPCB site for all the info and to see what boards are already being uploaded for sale! If you want some more info, you can also give this article from Hack-a-Day a look!
Check out this project coming from a group of amateur rocket enthusiasts in Denmark! They are currently working on a suborbital rocket to be launched in June! This past Sunday they completed a test of their engines - pretty darn cool. Ultimately, they will be sending a manned rocket up into the atmosphere. This site is in Danish, so we recommend a translating website if you don't speak the language (such as Google's), but you can also check out this site in English, complete with more videos and pictures!
