Week Two Recap: Source Code!

In this episode, Chris discovers that you can splice clips into the middle of videos…

(I’m truly sorry)

As for what has happened over the past week:

The source code has been released and is available on GitHub:

Go check it out in all of its unfinished, pre-beta glory.

Labrador is now 66% funded! Well on her way to hitting that target!

Dziękuję bardzo to the three backers from Poland! I may have fangirled a little bit when I saw where you were from. Such an amazing country with a rich history and interesting language - and definitely worth a visit!

And that’s about it.

Like always, please email me with any questions, queries or suggestions - especially suggestions for worthy organisations to donate boards to.

Thanks once again,

Support the maker movement!

You will be simultaneously helping the Labrador project and maker movement grow. For every $20 raised through the “Support Now” button, a Labrador board plus microUSB cable will be sent to an organisation promoting STEM education and/or the maker movement.


Your very own Labrador!

You will receive a Labrador board, fully assembled with headers. All you need is your own microUSB cable and you’re ready to go! No soldering required.


Shape the Development

You will be shipped a prototype Labrador board the moment the campaign ends, plus have access to all of the latest software builds throughout development. You will be in direct contact with us and be able to shape the future of Labrador! Then, once development is finished, you’ll get one of the first final Labradors that roll off of the production line - and the knowledge that you helped bring it to life!


Class Set

25 fully assembled Labradors, 25 MicroUSB cables, 25 breadboards and a selection of components to get your students started: there will be resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, op-amps, 555 timers, and LEDs! Perfect for teaching a class the fundamentals of electronics.


101 Labradors (we ran out of Dalmatians)

A huge pack of Labradors! Perfect for universities. Comes with 101 fully assembled Labradors, 101 microUSB cables, 101 solderless breadboards, and free shipping - a savings of over 40% compared to individual units. Hand these out like candy to first-year students and then watch their interest in electrical engineering grow!


Early bird Labrador!

Your very own Labrador, fully assembled and ready to go! And, even better, at a fraction of the cost of a regular Labrador.



A new, Aussie startup created by a new, Aussie engineering graduate. Our aim is to bring technology to the world that allows everyone to create new things. Labrador is the beginning of this.
