1) OMG Forbes!  

Jason Evangelho – a tech journalist – wrote an article about MAKERbuino, CircuitMess, and our story in general and published it right before this year’s CES.  

The big deal here is that the article was published on Forbes – one of the most successful business media brands in the world – where it was awarded a tiny yellow “editor’s pick” medal and was featured on forbes.com’s front page at one point!

2) Vegas baby! 

Thanks to the Idea Knockout startup competition, we showcased MAKERbuino at CES in Las Vegas – the biggest consumer electronics show in the world!  

We had a chance to meet brilliant like-minded people from all over the globe and have received quite positive feedback. CES really is a unique experience for everyone as you are able to meet people from tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft, or Google, all at the same place.

 

 



3) Starting now, MAKERbuino is available via Amazon, eBay, and Tindie!  

And the best part – the prices are the same as in our webshop, but you’re protected by Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee, eBay’s money back guarantee and Tindie’s customer guarantee!

4) MAKERbuino workshop in Split  

We had a blast organizing a MAKERbuino workshop/chillout in Split – one of the largest cities in Croatia. 

The event was organized in collaboration with Clan gaming e-sports lounge and bar.

 

 

 

5) DHL, UPS, GLS – new shipping options in the MAKERbuino webshop     

Need your MAKERbuino ASAP? Are you dealing with a birthday emergency? No problem!  

We’ve made a deal with some of the world’s most popular package shipping carriers and are now offering various types of express shipping alongside with standard tracked mail that we’ve used for MAKERbuino delivery so far.  

–> To the shop 



We’ve also got something new in the works that we plan to release real soon, so stay tuned!
 

Keep making!
