MakerCon’s Launch Pad competition culminated Tuesday in a grand prize awarded to Brooklyn-based startup BotFactory and their desktop circuit printer Squink.
With Squink, BotFactory is hoping to simplify and streamline electronic prototyping by offering a single machine capable of printing circuit traces with conductive ink and gluing, picking, and placing small surface mount components automatically.
Squink squeezed past nine other Launch Pad finalists, ranging from a semi-autonomous farming ATV, to a centrifugal coffee maker.
