First off, an order of business - SparkFun is having its annual Summer Excursion tomorrow (July 21st), so we will be on a skeleton staff for the afternoon. So get your orders in today!
Over the past couple months, we've been releasing videos documenting our trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. This post marks the last installment of the videos - but first, a quick recap of our trip!
The primary reason for going to Copenhagen was to check out the Copenhagen Suborbitals team as they prepared for their launch. But the excursion turned out to be much more than we ever anticipated. Vanessa and Dzl (of Critical Corset fame) invited us onto the Illutron barge, which is essentially a big barge that has been turned into a collaborative art studio. It is docked in the port of Copenhagen. It was amazing to see a bunch of cool projects and meet a great group of people working together to innovate and create.
We also took a trip up to the Øresund Bridge to get to Malmö, Sweden. David Cuartielles (of Blushing Boy and Arduino) showed us around the interaction design program at Malmö University. Trust us when we say this is not your average engineering department!
Check out the video above to see Part III of some highlights from the trip (watch Part I and Part II first, if you'd like). It was a great experience! Special thanks to Jessica Grenier (professional photographer who accompanied us) and Sam Miller (videographer from The Rehab) for helping us document this wonderful trip.
