version 2 - LEARN
Aweigh - Version 2 was created for users like M. who align with the project’s values and wish to gain more digital literacy. This version of the project uses building blocks for each aspect of the device: hardware, software, and mechanics. It uses the Aweigh self-navigation board, 3D printed templates of inner system, self-snapping casings, and example software files. The set up, assembly, and use of these tools are free for the user to modify and build on. All modules are compatible with the latest version of Raspberry Pi. Each component can be ordered through the website or constructed through publicly available means. Version 2 is made to be constructed in a variety of forms chosen for their affordances or aesthetic qualities.
