There is officially a new way to program your MakeCrate projects, all thanks to University of Illinois Research Park startup AE Machines.
MakeCrate develops high quality electronic kits that are available to teach anyone that is interested in learning the fundamental skills that are required to be a technology maker. These skills include coding, and all kits are equipped with Arduino kits and instructions.
AE Machines builds tools that allow people and businesses to design and automate machine movement. They provide the missing link to allow businesses to implement simple automation, which saves money.
AE Machines provides MakeCrate a drag-and-drop interface that aids in teaching coding skills through logic and sequence and an Arduino while eliminating the debugging process of coding, that can often trip new coders up.
The simple and clean interface that AE Machines provides makes coding fun, and simpler to use for those who have no prior experience with coding. AE Machines helps MakeCrate reach their goal of easy to learn coding for technical beginners.
You can watch the tutorials for getting started with AE Machines here, and the tutorial for MakeCrate starter kit here. After that, all you need to do is set up your own AE Machines account and get started creating fun projects.
