Hackers-on-a-Train comes to Workshop 88!

August 3, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re a part of the Hackers-on-a-Train tour this summer! Mitch Altman is going to be stopping by Workshop 88 and running a workshop where you can build an electronics kit to take home and have as your own.

We’re really thrilled to have Mitch stop by. He has taught thousands of people to build electronics. Mitch is a founding member of Noisebridge, one of the oldest hackerspaces in the country.

Here are some of the kits you can build:

TV-B-Gone — (turn off any TV in public places!)
“Hi My Name Is” badge — (you may have seen Mitch wearing one)
Brain Machine — (Meditate, Hallucinate, and Trip Out!)
Mignonette Game — (build your own handheld game console!)
Trippy RGB Waves — (interac tive blinky lights!)
LEDcube — (animated 3D cube of LEDs!)
MiniPOV — (more cool blinky lights!)
BoArduino — (solderless breadborad Arduino!)
Diavolino — (shield compatible Arduino from Evil Mad Science!)
OpenHeart — (animate fun patterns in the shape of a heart!)
LoL Shield — (Lots of LEDs for your Arduino!)
Atari Punk Console — (make noise!)
microcontroller programmer (USBtinyISP)– (program all your AVR family chips!)

This event is FREE, although we are encouraging donations to Workshop 88 if you’re able. You will simply buy whatever kit (or kits) you wish to build from Mitch.  Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
