Arduino day 2017 [Kickstarter Update 2]

Dear fellow makers, hackers, technology lovers of all sorts, we’re over 250% funded and only 7 days have passed since the start of the campaign! This wouldn’t be possible without your awesome support! Therefore, we’re all sending you a big THANK YOU and an imaginary high five… high five
Yet, there are still 17 more days to go and we’ll make MAKERbuino even more popular and even better!

Here’s a quick update about what we’ve been doing and what happened lately:

  • we’ve started ordering parts and producing early bird kits

  • We’ve got featured on Mashable!

  • Today we visited an Arduino day
    celebration festival in Zagreb, the capital city of our homeland - Croatia.
    The festival was held at a coworking space and an innovation and creativity center called HUB385.
    There we’ve exhibited MAKERbuino and talked with quite a few fans that just stopped by to root for MAKERbuino and give us a high five.

Lots of cool startups and makers had booths at the festival and they loved the idea behind MAKERbuino:
Meet BadBorg Industrial, a super cool prop maker and cosplayer from Zagreb:

Our friends from Juvo also gave thumbs up for MAKERbuino!

  • we organized a basic soldering workshop for children as a part of the Arduino day festival

Thanks again for your support, we’ll keep making and you should too!

Stay tuned for some fancy stretch goals.
