Bay Area Maker Faire 2017

Thanks to everyone who stopped by at Bay Area Maker Faire 2017! We had a blast seeing some old faces and meeting new ones. For those who missed it, here's a recap of the weekend.

New Product Release

We launched the TinySaber for the first time at MFBA17! The TinySaber is a novelty DIY toy kit that fits in the palm of your hand. This product features sixteen vibrant RGB LEDs, a reprogrammable processor, and multiple built-in functions and modes. We will soon be releasing a tutorial on how to modify and reprogram the default code so you can customize your own TinySaber experience. You can purchase the kit here for $25. 

Parts included in the TinySaber kit.
