Details

If you look around at the products you use – toys, electronics, games, etc. – they’re all built upon common hardware components that connect and talk to each other. How would you like to design, build and program your own hardware-based invention?

In this class, you’ll learn about littleBits (http://littlebits.cc) hardware components, circuitry basics and how you can use them to build things you see everyday. Then, you’ll design something of your own, learn how to build it from these same components and program it to work.

Speaker

A group from Tack Mobile (http://tackmobile.com/) will be presenting in a space sponsored by the Assembly Workspace (http://www.assembly.ws/). Tack Mobile is a design and development company in Denver that specializes in building software for mobile and other connected devices. Assembly is a creative workspace in the TAXI community of Denver’s River North area.
