"Weekly Meeting and Christmas DIY projects"


Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate.

This week at ReverseSpace we will be hosting the Home Automation Group's meeting on how to build and design your own 3D printed window LED candles, a 3D printer LED
glowing blub, and redesigning a store bought cordless window LED candle to last an entire month without having to change batteries. The meeting will start at 6:30pm and the space will be open from 5:30pm to 11pm.

For more information on the Home Automation Group meeting, please
go to:

(Glow Sphere we made here at the space using a small LED we bought.
We have around 24 of these led's for member's projects.  Each cost us
less than $1 each.)

(Search for “Williamsburg Cordless LED Candle with Streetside
Brightness” to find the candle in which we altered to increase the
battery life to run this an entire month.


If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
