Hardware Hack Night

A group of us are thinking about putting together a hardware hackers meetup. To help kickstart that group, we're going to open up the meeting for hardware hacking. If you have a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Beagle Bone, ARDrone, etc. to hack on then bring it and lets see what we can do with them. If you'd like to share some personal hardware hacking that you've done on your own bring that as well. If you're only into ruby and want to pair with someone on a Kata, then we will have an area set up for that as well.

    Is there a local Hardware hacking group or was this a one-off sort of thing? This is exactly what brought me to Meetup.com today. I've been working on a "hacker station" in my office. I've got multiple breadboards, Pi's, Arduino's, motors, and a slew of sensors I can bring as well.

    Very fun. People were flying quadcopters with web browsers and ps3 controllers... tons of tiny computers with wires coming out of them. Very nerd-cool.

    Lots of fun - loved the quad-copters. I think we had some good ideas for future meetups. Anybody interested in building a midi foot controller that works with ableton live? Any ideas of future events would love to know!

    Outstanding meetup! Thanks for organizing Joel. A lot of fun and a good mix of experience levels. I am excited for this to branch off into it's own meetup! Keep me posted. My first time at Lean Dog, too. What a cool space.

    I don't know if I will be able to make it tomorow night now that we got over a foot of snow dumped on us here in Erie. I-90 from the Bayfront Pkwy eastward is NOT looking good at all.

      Don't sweat it... I wouldn't drive that far in bad weather either. Plenty more Thursdays in the future and I just found a site called cyberdojo where it looks like you can pair over the net. I'm going to mess around with it.

      We meet on the first Thursday of every month. So if you can't make it tomorrow night, we will be meeting again next month. And there's no reason we can't have an impromptu meetup somewhere in between as well. Feel free to make a suggestion. I think some folks were considering the idea that we could get together twice a month. Once for presentations, and once for practice. I'm up for new ideas if you or anyone is interested.

    I'd LOVE to pair with someone on a Kata. I am mostly into RoR.

    • Rick B.

      I would be happy to work on a Kata for a bit.

    Yea I have Raspberry Pi with ruby on it. Maybe a game of life led board is in order!

    Not sure when I will get it but I bought a sphero2. I will bring it if I can.

    I have a small arduino kit i can bring with me and maybe some of the materials from the codemash precompiler that people might find interesting.

    We've got some cool stuff coming to this meetup. I'll be bringing an ARDrone and a Roomba for folks to try working on.

    January 29, 2014

  • Chris C.

    me and my good friend netduino will see you there!

  • Dan S.

    That sounds awesome! Sad I can't make this meetup as I have friends coming in from out of town.
