LabVIEW Makerhub and Digilent at SXSW Create!

Digilent is on the road again, but this time, partnered with our friends at LabVIEW Makerhub! We are collectively headed to the sunny tech-music-mecca, South by South West (SXSW) in Austin, TX!

You will be able to find us in the SXSW Create section. It’s free and open to the public and takes place Friday, March 11th until Sunday, March 13th.

From the official SXSW website:

Join SX Create presented by Dremel at its new home at the Palmer Events Center on March 11-13, 2016. The hardware hacking and maker arm of SXSW is at it again with more space, more fun, and even more hands-on excitement.

Doing creative and revolutionary things with new technologies embodies the spirit of the SXSW Interactive Festival, and nowhere is this more evident than the diverse mix of activities at SX Create. From 3D printing to drones to biohacking and much more, this community event showcases the disruptive solutions that are shaping our future.

This is our first year attending this iconic festival and we are doing it with our friends at LabVIEW Makerhub.

Digilent LabVIEW for all

Our friends at LabVIEW Makerhub will be showing off a variety of LabVIEW projects and demos including, a Magic Mirror, Balancing Robot and a Ball Sorter.

The Digilent team will be introducing LabVIEW using our PCB ruler!

We will also be running an activity that allows a user to connect the ruler to our WF32 via LabVIEW. They can use the touch screen interface running LabVIEW to blink the LED.

The best part?

The first 1,000 visitors to our booth get to go home with the ruler!

Were anticipating a really busy few days, but we would love for you to come, get a ruler, talk with us, learn about @Digilent and #LabVIEWMakerhub.

If you can’t come, then please join us and @NIglobal on Instagram and Twitter to see real-time updates!

  1. Looking forward to see how SXSW goes!

    It looks like a pretty big event from the @Digilent Instagram photo. You all get to be at the giant booth along the back wall, right? 😀
