I'm interested in home automation projects, 3-D printing, wearable electronics (everything from notifying LED strips to Google Glass), R/C helicopters and crafting beautiful, ergonomic things from wood, fabric and metal that would make life outdoors more inviting.
Ever since I attended a Workshop Weekend series in Oakland, CA, I've been enlightened to my own potential as a DIYer and maker. I do not have a technical background, but I bring with me a powerful love of learning and creating.
I look forward to learning about Arduinos, access to tools (welding and 3D printers would be fantastic!) and to becoming a part of the maker community.
Recent transplant to the Jersey shore and keenly interested in robotics, electronics and making things whirr, tick and move. I'm a novice to microcontrollers but am extremely interested in getting started with basic projects using Arduino.
