Following the successful funding of my Fibonacci Clock project on Kickstarter I decided to keep producing the clock and launched this online store to sell it worldwide.
Adafruit Indistries (http://www.adafruit.com)
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT hacker & engineer, Limor “Ladyada” Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Adafruit has grown to over 50+ employees in the heart of NYC with a 50,000+ sq ft. factory. Adafruit has expanded offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. Limor was the first female engineer on the cover of WIRED magazine, awarded Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur of the year. Ladyada was a founding member of the NYC Industrial Business Advisory Council. Adafruit is ranked #11 in the top 20 USA manufacturing companies and #1 in New York City by Inc. 5000 “fastest growing private companies”. Adafruit is featured in Google’s Economic Impact Report. Limor was named a WHITEHOUSE CHAMPION OF CHANGE in 2016. Adafruit is a 100% woman owned company.
We are Steve Mould, Matt Parker and James Grime. We do maths shows, and people are always asking where they can buy the stuff from our shows. How disappointing to be told that it’s all hand made and can’t be bought! That’s why we decided to start making things in bulk and selling them. Matt and Steve started Maths Gear in 2011. James joined soon after and continues to feed the website will new toys like the Grime Dice and the Utilities Mug. The shop is steadily growing as we add more hard-to-find mathematical curiosities.
