Make:SF Nov 8th @ The Tech Shop

Hello Makers,

As usual we begin with project demos. So come and show off your projects! We want to see the cool stuff your making. If you want to do a demo, email us and we will arrange for it.

Then it is on to our EL wire workshop! EL Wire lights up like neon, yet is flexible enough embellish clothing, bikes, computers and more. When combined with a driver, it can glow, blink, or even be programmed in complex sequences that produced animations.

In the workshop, we will cover the basics - soldering the EL Wire to the connector, which allows it to be attached to the driver, which powers the wire; and working with EL Wire to attach it to a stable shape, such as an item of clothing.

Kit Cost: $10. 
Includes a driver, 18 inches of wire (blue, white, red, orange, green or yellow), and connectors.

You provide the item to which you wish to attach the wire. Jackets, hats, bracelets, bikes, and even laptops might be good candidates.

    A well led meeting. Plenty of space, good lighting, ample tools and materials. Instruction was good with individual help as needed, visual materials available as well.

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.
