Way back on June 26th, 2012 Tindie launched as an outlet for small-run electronics and hardware. Last month we passed a major milestone; Tindie launched product number 10,000 on July 5th, 2017
During this march from 1 to 10,000 a vibrant community of Tindarians grew up around a wide range of technologies. You can get an overview of this in my What is Tindie Anyway? article from last month. We’ve seen many changes along the way, like the 2015 sale to Supplyframe, Hackaday’s parent company, as announced on Hackaday.com.
Check in on our stats and you’ll see there are currently more than 5,400 active listings from Tindarians in over 130 countries. So, yes, Tindie is your worldwide hub for unique electronics and hardware projects!
So what’s the “lucky” product #10,000 you ask? That would be the CCS811 Air Quality Breakout board. The device measures total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in the air, and given its very small form factor and I²C communication capability, could make a good tool for environmental monitoring.
So a big thanks to everyone that sells and buys here. Obviously this site would be nothing without you, and we hope that we’re able to provide a great service for this unique and growing niche!
