90% Funded, More Projects, Teardown

Thanks to all your support the project is 90% funded! But we only have five more days left! So, now’s the time to act to get your own Programmable-Air kit!

I’ve been keeping busy helping beta testers with some projects. Here are some of them:

Origami Gripper

I had been meaning to do this project forever. I recently met Aditya, an origami expert and 48 hours we made it! Here’s a nice video of it action.


I had tried making an airbrush with Programable-Air before - a few times actually - and all but gave up on it. It took the genius of @SidChou to make it work. And, he wrote a very detailed Instructable on it!

Teardown conference

I’m demoing Programmable-Air at Teardown 2019, Portland this weekend and will be giving a talk on it as well! Come say hi, and check out the demos!
