Conrad introduced MAKERFACTORY to Maker Faire in Berlin

The Maker Faire in Germany, Berlin returned for a 4th year, with Michael Schlagenhaufer, senior Director Corporate Purchasing Business Unit Private Label at Conrad describing it as “the ideal setting” for Conrad’s launch of MAKERFACTORY.

According to Conrad, MAKERFACTORY products are aimed at all makers, hobbyists, inventors and technicians, and include in-house developments from the Conrad Technology Centre.

The MAKERFACTORY portfolio ranges from various components, shields, accessories and sets for single board computers, to learning kits and complex robotics.

“Our goal was to create a brand that understands its users. For example, in the area of education, we are preparing educational content and products are orientated to subjects from curricula”, explained Conrad Maker expert, Daniel Infanger, Vice President International B2C at Conrad.

The MAKERFACTORY Challenge 2018, which took place at the Maker Faire Berlin, comprised six creative teams who competed for equipment worth €10,000 for their Maker Space.

A panel of experts will award the winning project live on September 15th at the Maker Faire in Hannover.
