Laika at the Pi foundation

Yesterday we travelled down to the Raspberry Pi Foundation in Cambridge to demonstrate Laika to Clive and Gordon.

They seemed as excited as we were, and and it just left us all the more determined to see Laika into production, so don't forget if you haven't already, go take a look at our kickstarter.

Launching Laika - Elephant and Castle Maker Faire

We decided that there was no better place or time to launch Laika than London's first ever Maker Faire, at the London College of Communication, Elephant and Castle, and boy were we rewarded with a fantastic turnout (more than 1500 people braving the hotest day of the year so far), and plenty of early interest in the Laika kickstarter.

 We were thrilled to meet so many makers, and especially by the interest in the younger audience in the Maker movement (next generations engineers?).

The protoype buggy was a big hit, and so easy to control with just a few scratch commands.

For more pictures of the launch see our Flickr set here.

Kickstarting Laika

 preview-logo-light

 

Our Kickstarter is now live! We will be using Kickstarter to raise funds to produce and distribute the Laika Explorer boards.

The LAIKA system is a great way to get your hardware project off the ground. To get the hardware to you as quickly as possible, we need to raise funds to see the PCB's through production and distribution.

For any of you who have been involved in electronics manufacture you will know that it's all about MOQ's - Minimum Order Quantities. It is simply not feasible to order small batches of product due to the set up costs and poor price breaks. So we need you to help us out by pledging your support so we can afford to place a sizeable order that contract manufacturers will be interested in and then see it through distribution channels.

If we can get pledges for 300 or more boards, it will allow us to bring Laika quickly to the world of makers. Help us get Laika into production.
