Make:SF South (6/25) IR to control an Arduino - adding wireless to your project!

This month we are doing IR control! Come and learn about how your remote control works and how it can be used to control your Arduino. This is a great and simple way to add wireless control to your project. With this people have done some really cool things like make a Color Changing Cloud and Helicopter Control. We will be working from the Ada Fruit IR tutorial and the cost for the workshop is be $5.

Please bring:

- a computer with Arduino installed on it

- a Arduino Uno, Mega, or equivalent (if you do not have an Arduino we have a small number we can loan to you)

If you have these bring them as well.

- a remote control

- the project you want to control

We want to see the cool stuff you all are doing! So email us if you have something you want to show off and we will arrange a demo.  Or just bring it along and we will have a show & tell!

A fun-for-all-ages event. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

See you soon!
