At Maker Faire New York in September, MAKE will be presenting the Makey Awards to recognize companies and products making "outstanding contribution to the cause of maker-related education and/or open access to technology." Thanks to the excellent innumerable contributions of BeagleBoard.org community members, a handful which were mentioned the announcement that BeagleBoard.org has been nominated for one of those awards in the category of Hackable Gadgets:
Accessibility drives innovation; for their commitment to making open and hackable hardware accessible, we’re pleased to nominate BeagleBoard.org (and by extension their partners at TI and Digikey) for the 2012 Makey awards.
It's hard to imagine a better stamp of approval! Well, come to think of it, it isn't that hard -- there's no better stamp of approval than the projects that people are able to bring to life! You've heard of OpenROV, Ninja Blocks and the Descriptive Camera now; what is it you are planning to make and show us all at Maker Faire New York in September, Maker Faire Detroit in two weeks or on your own blog, Google+ and YouTube today?
