Make:SF South 2/27 @ The Tech Shop SJ - Arduino Temperature Clock!

Hello Makers,

We begin with maker demos. We want to see the cool stuff you all are doing! So email us if you have something you want to show off.

Then we continue our Arduino projects with the Arduino Temperature Clock. This time the focus will be on programming. We will be taking in data from a temperature sensor and then feeding that data into Processing and displaying it as a clock. In case you do not know what Processing is, it is the equivalent of Arduino but for a computer.

This is a great project for those of you who have bought an Arduino but have not quite known what to do with it. We will go through the steps for programming the Arduino, explain code syntax, and how to communicate with Processing. The workshop will be $10.

For this project you will need to:

) Download Arduino and Processing and install both programs on your computer (if possible - we can do a few installs at the meetup). 

) Bring your computer 

) ***Bring your own*** UnoDuemilanove, or Mega Arduino. (we will have a few extra to borrow for those who need it). 

) Bring an A/B (flat to sqaure) USB cable (again we will have a few extra)

This fun-for-all-ages event starts at 6:30pm. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

    Only a few of us, but we were busy. Much more involved than last meeting. I'm not even close to understanding this project, but was happy to get through and make the clock, thanks to everyone's help.

    We are not "selling" parts, we are covering our costs for the workshop and stuff we have to keep on hand in general for some of the monthly projects we set up. That being said, you do receive a temperature sensor and i am bringing snacks!

    Since we have to bring our own Arduino, what does the $10 cover?
