Teardown Session 27: Pixel Pump pick and place machine by Robin Reiter

This week, host Helen Leigh chats with creator Robin Reiter about his Pixel Pump project, currently funding on Crowd Supply. Pixel Pump is an open-source, manual pick-and-place machine for PCB artisans. They cover far-ranging topics about print farms, the joys of designing your own packaging, and using MicroPython in a product.

As always, anyone who comments or asks a question during the livestream has a chance to win this week’s box of mystery hardware!
