Needs a location
Framingham Makerspace is starting an “LED Toys for Spinners” group. Our goal is to form a multidisciplinary group including spinners, electronics, mechanical design, 3D artists/industrial design and anyone who is interested to design and build cool LED toys for spinners. As befits a Makerspace the goal of this project will be experimenting and learning as a group while we build some neat stuff.
We'll discuss what types of toys are already out there, get input from the spinners and tech folks and hopefully decide on our first project and how to get started on it.
No need to be an expert to get involved, as long as you are willing to learn and help you are welcome. Our philosophy is to enable people to build and do the things that they are excited about so we'll gladly help and mentor those who are trying something new.
Location is north Framingham, MA, address will be provided when you RSVP.
Here is an example of some toys:
