Meet Floris.cc: a new Genuino reseller in The Netherlands

Joining a list of others from GermanySpain, Italy and Portugal, Europe’s latest Genuino reseller hails from The Netherlands! Let’s give a warm welcome to Pieter Floris, who we recently had a chance to catch up with to learn a little more about the work he’s been doing with Floris.cc!

- Tell us a bit more about Floris.cc.

Early in 2009, I was searching for a good “learning kit for Arduino” for use in a physical computing course at Communication & Multimedia Design (CMD Avans University – Breda). I found the ARDX kit from Oomlout. I had some email contact with Aaron from Oomlout, got a list of components, started gathering parts, composing kits, and a few weeks later, Floris.cc was born. The ARDX kit was my first product (including the Arduino Duemilanove at that time). In the years following business was growing, I started reselling Adafruit, Sparkfun, Pololu, and I was even one of the first shops outside the U.S. reselling the Teensy boards. I still focus on education, making lots of kits for schools and universities.

- What’s your company’s super power?

From the start, I wanted a personal approach, the latest gadgets, and super fast delivery. It’s very satisfying to hear from happy customers! Big thanks to the Maker community–they give me super power!

- Do you have a favorite Arduino/Genuino project?

My favorite Arduino/Genuino project is “Blink,” the first blinking LED is magical.

We have a solid technical support and training team, which makes us different from other stores. We even developed an Arduino community for vocational school called A-UDIK. Our mission is to hold Arduino training for the vocational school’s teachers and students throughout Indonesia.

- Do you have a favorite Arduino/Genuino project?

We would have to say one of the most interesting projects using Arduino/Genuino is the Vertical Hydroponic Farm (Robotic Urban Farm System) by Paul Langdon–which can be found here. It’s very useful for our environment and farmers.

Meet Core Electronics: a new Genuino reseller in Australia

We’re happy to introduce you to our new Genuino Reseller in Australia: welcome Graham Mitchell of Core Electronics holding a brand new Genuino Uno R3!

- Tell us a bit more about Core Electronics.

Core Electronics is based in Newcastle, Australia. Since 2007, we have brought together creative products from around the world (now including Genuino!) to empower innovative Makers in Australia. The Arduino team and community have been an integral part of the Maker Movement, and we’re honestly excited to support Genuino here in Australia.

- What’s your company’s super power? 

It would have to be that Core Electronics is powered by a staff of Makers and DIYers. This means we’re passionate about what we do and “we get it” when it comes to product support.

- What’s your favourite Arduino or Genuino project?

Robotanic” from VIVID Sydney 2015. VIVID Sydney is a very popular annual event where art, technology and commerce intersect. The “Robotanic” installation was a digital garden of organically shaped nodes with plant-like characteristics. Each node varied in shape and height. When touched, the nodes would put on a show of erratic light and would respond to motion-sensors, which triggered sounds associated with nature as if the environment was coming to life. At the heart of each node was an Arduino Mega.

It was a sensational project and we helped with a couple of product selections to get the team on track. I’ve showcased this project as it’s an example where creativity meets technology; enabled by Arduino and the broader community.

Meet BricoGeek: a new Genuino reseller in Spain

Some weeks ago we started introducing to the community our list of resellers and the updated page where you can find resellers of Genuino and Arduino products around the world.

We started with Watterott from Germany and now, in the picture below,  you can see Diego and Oscar from BricoGeek  based in Spain and ready to ship  Genuino Uno and Genuino Mega  boards!

Let’s get to know them better:

- Tell us a bit more about BricoGeek

We started our company in 2005 and later in 2007 we became one of the first Arduino official distributors for Spain and Portugal. After winning a board in a contest organized by uchobby.com I had so much fun with my new board, I continued to make more projects which I posted in our blog and realised that this little board was really easy to understand and I could make  great things with it. Many of our viewers also enjoyed our projects and started making too. And here we are, 10 years later, sharing projects and growing our community of fellow makers!

- What’s your company’s super power?

We aim to be honest and don’t fool our customers. We try to make BricoGeek a good place to share knowledge and ideas and it seems our customers love that as much as we do.

- What’s your favorite Arduino or Genuino project?

[Oscar] There are so many projects I like and it’s hard to keep track of all of them but I recently discovered a really cool project called “Cubetto” which is a game with a little robot to help kids understand and learn programming. And from the same guys another one called “Toot” also for kids and based on the Montessori learning system. Im working on very similar projects that hopefully I will release them in a few weeks (but shhh it’s a surprise for my daughter! ;D). I really enjoy when I make a project that helps young people learn new technical skills, you will be surprised how smart kids can be when they really enjoy learning.

Meet the Arduino and Genuino resellers!

In 2015 we’ve been setting-up an independent, modular production network with world-class partners that share our very own approach to open source hardware. We partnered with manufacturers and resellers including Adafruit in United States, Seeedstudio in China, Axel in Italy.

Now we are happy to share with our community the updated page dedicated to resellers, making Genuino and Arduino products available around the world. On the  page you can find all the info and links to get in touch if you are interested in purchasing  boards in your country, or you want to become one of our resellers.

From today  we’ll be also highlighting new resellers on the Arduino blog, so you can get to know them better.


Watterott Electronic (Germany)

The team of Watterott Electronic is manufacturing Genuino boards and is the official Genuino reseller for Germany. We started selling Genuino boards manufactured by Watterott during Maker Faire Rome 2015.

In the picture you can see Stephan Watterott of Watterott Electronic (Germany) holding brand new Genuino boards ready to be shipped!

 

- Tell us a bit more about Watterott

I founded the company Watterott Electronic in early 2008 as a hobby project in Hausen (Thuringia, Germany). The goal was to offer some own microcontroller boards and special hard to find development components.
My first warehouse was in the garage of my parents house. After about 2 years the garage was to small and I moved to the city of Leinefelde (only 5km away). Until today I added more and more products to our portfolio and also the manufacturing of own boards has increased. Finally at the end of 2015 we became a manufacturer and reseller for Genuino boards.

- What’s your company’s super power?

We can do nearly everything in-house and so we a very short time from the idea to a prototype or final product/board.

- What’s your favorite Arduino or Genuino project?

I have two favorite Arduino/Genuino projects:

  • DIY-Thermocam (previously Cheap Thermocam) from Max Ritter.
    I followed the project from the first hour and I also supported Max on his first prototypes.
    http://www.diy-thermocam.net
  • FabScan (DIY 3D Scanner).
    The project shows how 3D scanning is working and I also designed the Arduino FabScan Shield in 2012.
