SparkFun Electronics will be closed on July 3rd, 2015 in observance of Independence Day. Any orders placed after 2:00pm MT on July 2nd will be shipped out after the weekend. Thanks!
On the heels of Monday's class announcement, we have another upcoming class that is sure to delight the loved ones in your family. If you're anything like me, thinking of a Valentine's gift for your loved one can be difficult. Sure, there's the tried and true chocolate and flowers and the oh-so-cliche romantic dinner, but this year, I've got one word for you: Plushbot.
Plushbots are cute stuffed animals chock-full of electronics. In our Valentine's Day Plushbot class, you'll learn how to make things like a stuffed plush heart that lights up when you bend its arm for your cutie, a bird ornament that makes noise when it gets dark, or a frog that lights up and makes noise when it gets dark. These projects make for excellent gifts or just an excuse to get your significant other into electronics. They are great for kids and adults!
The class begins with an introduction to Plushbots by the creator, Yingdan Huang. Students can choose one of the three patterns to create. After lunch we will program the projects and troubleshoot the circuits. By the end of the day, students will take away a functioning Plushbot. This class takes place on Saturday, February 11th from 9 AM until 5 PM. Hope to see you there!
