    Someone asked about the parts needed for the led strip project, so here is the list.

    o Ledwholesalers 30 Watt LED Power Suppply Driver Transformer 120 to 12 Volt DC Output, 3207 (Amazon)

    o RGB LED weatherproof flexi-strip 30 LED - (1 m) (Adafruit)

    o TIP120 Power Darlington Transistors (RadioShake)
    N-channel power MOSFET

    o Arduino Uno

    Thanks for the warm welcomes and kind comments! Tom, if I may recommend, the led tie with that Arduino suit.

    Last night’s meeting was enlightening in every sense of the word. Thank you Toni Klopfenstein and the Sparkfun company for the hands-on audience participation projects. I’m still wondering how they make the incredibly light stainless steel textile-like sewing thread. That and the ultra-thin flexible component card really drove home the point to me that “smart garments” aren’t science fiction. In the not-too-far-off future, when asked “who are you wearing for tonight’s premiere,” instead of Armani, you can say “oh, it’s an Arduino (quad core).”

    I had a great time making the LED badge. The presentation that Fernand did on the LED string of lights was great.

    Last month's meeting set a high standard for SherlockΩs presentations. Fernand's home automation of garage door opener with optional smart watch control app was "over the top". As a total novice, I walked away with a terrific understanding of the electronics, components and the programming involved. Thanks again Fernand for all the effort that went into making it a very comprehensive and well-rounded presentation.

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.
