10,000 attendees. 50 competing companies. 2 days. Ready was selected by the Grand Jury for the "Best Technology" at the 2017 Launch Festival in San Francisco. Check out the clip of the pitch and jury decision.
We've been working on connecting Ready to various robotics platforms, starting with Arduino. This video shows you:
- How to connect an Arduino Uno board to your desktop computer.
- Prepare the board to receive commands from Ready.
- Make a small "Hello World" program in Ready that will turn the LED light on and off on the board when a button is tapped inside the Ready scene.
"Firmata" source code to upload to your board. Link
We've started integration with major robotics platforms, like Arduino. This prototype video shows an example of controlling a parrot drone from inside Ready, then programming a Sphero to move towards and away from the drone depending on the drone's position. Stay tuned for release.
Last Friday, we did a hands-on workshop with educators at the Scarsdale Public Schools, at the request of Paul Tomizawa.
We all had a blast and learned a lot. Team Ready is looking forward to doing more together!
So you've been wondering... "How do I add my own pictures and stuff to my Ready projects?" Well, ask no more... This video will walk you through how to do it, on desktops and mobile. Happy making!

This week we visited the Lower Eastside Girls Club, an amazing place in downtown Manhattan: "Opening Doors, Empowering Women, Building Community, Girl by Girl."
The club's mission is to break the cycle of local poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial and environmental leaders.
Club instructor Lauren Vargas inspires the next generation of girls to be creators, and not just consumers, of digital media. Among the things she told us: "Girls gain confidence with Ready… It’s a beautiful thing when they’re excited and focused on making something for themselves, that they enjoy."
