Hack your Holiday Decorations

Make a light display that dances to music! An LED menorah! A New Year's disco ball!

Check out the tutorials and get inspired for your holiday displays.

Bringing an arduino, laptop, and other parts is encouraged, however I'll have a station for arduino newbies to play with an arduino and LEDs and I'll also have a couple of holiday kits for sale if you forget to bring your own.

As always, newbies are totally welcome, and if you don't have a project, come hang out, chat, and get inspired!

    Whoever it was with the IR thermometer, I didn't catch your name. Here's a link to hack that uses a cheap wifi router, to give your arduino wireless connectivity.

    Interesting stuff... seems like a much better solution than an $80 shield.

    Good to see everyone. Looks like we have a great group of people here! It's easy to tell when a meetup goes 2 hrs past when it's supposed to end. :)

    Message me if you live up north and are interested in meeting up more often. I attend the Active, Creative, Intelligent - Everett meetup, which is very small, and right now we are collaborating on Arduino projects.

    I have my Christmas ornament from last year, have a few ideas for this year. I can bring last year's project and work on this year's. Sounds like fun!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
