Windell, along with Eric Schlaepfer, was recently on the Embedded.fm podcast talking about their book, Open Circuits. You can listen to the episode or read the transcript.

DIYODE Magazine is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 555 and used our Three Fives Kit for an accompanying build.

Scientists working on developing techniques for bioprinting used the AxiDraw with a syringe in place of a pen as part of their experimental setup. They recently published an article they shared with us, saying,
We finally achieved what we planned with the Axidraw. It worked well! We made small patterns of hydrogel, millimetric, that we intend to use for seeding living cells.
It is always exciting for us to see people finding new uses for the AxiDraw. Thank you to Dr. Fitremann for sharing your results with us!

I was also previously on the podcast in 2015.
