SparkFun Electronics will be closed in observance of memorial day on Monday, May 29th. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 30th. Any orders placed after 2pm Mountain Time on Friday, May 26th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 30th.
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!
