Oculus Rift, Kinect, Arduino, Beagle Board, Leap Motion,. Google Glass, openFrameworks, SuperCollider, RGBDToolkit, Brain-Computer Interface, Max/MSP, PureData, vvvv, Processing... etc, etc!

If you are interested in the possibilities of new hardware, you have found the right crew!


We are witnessing an ongoing explosion of previously unattainable physical devices - commercial depth sensors, virtual & augmented reality, brain-computer interface, and a whole host more.

Our aim is to get together, discuss, learn, play, make and explore.

We love artists, engineers, designers, researchers, students, and anyone who is just plain curious. But more than that we love what happens when you put these people in a room together.


If you want to work with certain technologies please comment below in advance! We will try to make sure you can get access to the tools you need. 

If you want to work with certain people please look them up and drop a message to make sure they are coming that particular week! Many people come every other week or on odd occasions.

    Hey guys.. finally discovered what my Kinect issue was all about.. my home camera is 1473 which of course doesn't work with the new drivers..the camera I was using at NYU was 1414 which did work.. I must not have tried it at home before today.. there may be a fix but its iffy.. and v2 only for windows.. what a mess.. but business as usual....

    I would like to try a kinect v2 with os x in a theatre project, which involves small distances (~0.5 m max). Is there a kinect v2 I could try out?

    Is there some experience acquiring point clouds from kinect v2 on OS X at small distances?

      There are 2 Kinect2's in the cupboard. Ask Kent when you get there!

    Im a self tought PC and electronics buff. my first PC was a VIC 20, and my first electronics project was a sound wave generator using a pair of 555 IC chips, at the age of 7. With all that I am a novice to it all.

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.
