DFRobot’s Public Highlights of 2013
Looking back at the events, shows, milestones and announcements of the year 2013, we are proud of being one active participant in the global wave of maker movement, and are grateful of helping and being helped by the community on a mutual beneficial basis. Collaboration, shared efforts and improved technology capabilities were important themes throughout the year 2013. Below are some of the highlights tallied by us.
- Mind+ Beta Version Released
Mind+ is a flow-like visual programming software for Arduino that enables anyone to make fast prototypes intuitively and enjoys hardware hacking even without programming background. Instead of getting yourself taught with programming lessons, it allows your to dive right into hardware hacking and have the fun.
At Maker Carnival Shanghai 2013, the team met Mich Altman and was invited to hardware hacking section at 30C3 in Germany.
- Maker Faire Bay Area, 2013
It was truly a splendid show & tell of everything and everyone on earth:) We brought a bunch of nice toys such as the Cheapduino, Laser Keyboard and 3D scanner but the foremost joy came from winning the Editor’s Choice at Maker Faire!
- Campus Scientist UPCT 2013, Spain
We have been sponsoring this university graduate course called ”Cooking your own microrrobot” in Spain to promote the interest of hardware and electronics, specially to students, (but not only, also professors, researchers, and so on) the interest in the develop of their own micrrorobots.
In the second annual technology competition organized by the School of Telecommunication Engineering at the UPCT, A curious project “Avition”sponsored by DFRobot, consisting of a model of a flexible cell processing , cleaning and sorting chicken eggs low cost and implemented by students – Salar Adrian David Espin under the direction and coordination of Professor Sergio Gallardo, won the 1st prize.

DPRG members are interested in autonomous robots, movie replica robots, vintage robots, robot and kinetic art, as well as just about anything involving electronics, technology, or science.
- World Maker Faire New York, 2013
You might never have this kind of discount again! At World Maker Faire New York, we shipped two large parcels of hardware and modules and gave our dearest friends a great bargain, ha.
- Maker Carnival Shanghai, 2013
As a proud host of the biggest maker meetup and demonstrations in east China every year, the 2013 one was definitely a great success. Organizing over 80,000 attendees and over 100 maker/organizations wasn’t easy, but we did it, and we’ll keep on hosting.
- Shanghai’s 2nd Hackerspace, Mushroom Cloud opens to public
Fully supported by DFRobot, Mushroom Cloud derived its name from explosion of ideas and collaborative minds. Guests and members of Mushroom Cloud are able to use full range of hardware and handy tools/machines to create their own projects. Routine workshops, talks and meetups are also held.
