FirePick Delta News - beta testing begins soon

The FirePick Delta (an open source microfactory project) is shipping their Beta hardware!(May 2015)

The FirePick Delta is primarily a pick-and-place robot for assembling circuitboards.  However, it can support many different functions.  The point is to allow hobbyists and small businesses to use a robot to do things that are normally very inefficient and/or not feasible in a small workshop (such as pick-and-place of components, which is using a robot to install tiny electronics onto circuitboards.)

I will be one of the Beta Testers, responsible for assembling the hardware and setting up the software toolchain in order to test things out.  I will be responsible for helping with documentation as well (proper clear documentation).

In the meantime, visit the instagram page from Tin Whiskers to see the hardware all coming together!
