Adafruit Industries is famous for their web show Ask An Engineer, pioneering consumer-level DIY Arduino kits, hacking the Kinect, creating wearable iNecklace and iCufflink jewelry - and much more. ZDNet recently got a personal tour of Adafruit's New York headquarters where oodles of electronics kits are shipped to makers all over the world. At the hardware hacker's "candy store" it's now time for back to school orders, and Adafruit was operating at top volume, and we got an exclusive look at Limor Freid's new kit just for home food hackers: a make-it-yourself sous-vide. Visit the gallery for highlights of our behind-the-scenes tour.
