Time travel Tuesday #timetravel a look back at the Adafruit, maker, science, technology and engineering world

Road?  Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. – Dr. Emmett Brown.
Here’s a look back at the maker world and beyond!


2011


Two years ago Becky was still broadcasting Make: Live from her apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.


2010


Three years ago we launched book-selling with our perennially popular Arduino and electronics guides.


2008


Five years ago Phil and Make sent TV-B-Gone Kit to CES, to widespread acclaim and  confusion when tvs at booths across CES were mysteriously silenced.


2006


On New Year’s Day seven years ago, LadyAda felt compelled to stay at home & organize all the x0xb0x stuff for the third run. The satisfying results pictured above.


Way Back In Time…

1948


On January 24, 1948, IBM dedicated an early prototype, called a Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator, in New York City. The machine occupied a 30’x60′ room, with space for a punch card operator to work in the center.


1930


Today in 1930 Clyde Tombaugh photographed what was then labeled the last planet to be discovered in the solar system, Pluto. Pluto has subsequently been downgraded to a mere dwarf planet after it was discovered that it shared the Kuiper belt with several other bodies.


1911


On January 23rd, 102 years ago, after having already earned a Nobel Prize, Marie Curie was denied entrance into the French Academy of Sciences. She went on to win a second prize despite the Academy.
