Let's get together to have talks, discussions and share our experiences with Arduino.
For this time we are going to have:
+ Leslie Brothers: presenting one of her projects called "Peepers".
"Peepers are shy creatures that poke their heads up cautiously when no one is near, but quickly duck back down when someone approaches.
A Maxbotics ultrasound distance sensor detects proximity, while smallservos with pulleys and springs move the creatures in response."
+ Typer Calderone: talking about a "Daft Punk Helment" that he is building.
"A custom PCB manufactured for this project. Each PCB has 56 LEDs on it, with 8 more outputs tied to a series of 4 LEDs (strips), for a total of 176 LEDs (two sides/PCBs). Each PCB is controlled via a max7219 7-segment display driver, which is in turn controlled by a single Arduino. The Arduino gets input from a mic, which I break down to read the spectrum of sound, to display on the 7x8 LED matrix, per PCB, while "scrolling" the 8 strips. Not completely done yet, but most of it's working."

+ Harrington Joseph: explaining his current project, "A Robotic Arm".
We are still having room for more talks.
30 minutes to 1 hour+ presentations and/or demos about topics, ideas or projects, Arduino related.
5 to 15 minutes of Arduino related topics. Screens or demos are not required, just come up to the front and share your project, ideas, experience, thoughts, etc.
If you would like to present, please send me a message with your topic.
There is underground parking below the facility. It's $6 to park there. You can also park around Main st.
