LEGObots, MCUs, and Superheroes

Did you know that one crafty engineer has created a 3D printer made (mostly) from LEGOS? It’s true! In this episode of Fish Fry, we check out a LEGO 3D printer created by engineer Matthew Krueger and show you how you can make one for your very own. We also talk with Tyler Smith (Microchip) about the newest in wireless communication technologies and reveal some photographic evidence of EEJournal’s presence at last week’s Superhero Pub Crawl and World Record Attempt that took place in Portland, Oregon.

This week we’re giving away a GERTBoard courtesy of Newark element14! Hurry up and enter before the deadline for this contest runs out.
