Arduino Night @ BHS

We had Arduino night last Thursday. The big win was all the mentorship happening around the room on Arduino, projects and discussing the how’s and why’s. It was a terrific buzz with a wide range of activity.

From simple beginner projects…

to “The Midi Mushroom”, a really cool project Chris is working on that sends Midi instrument signals when you hit it.

We saw more of the hardkernel Odroid. It runs either Android or plain Linux.

Looks like some “projects waiting on the shelf ” were there too.

Most of the rest of us got some LEDs blinking or hooked up some device. Except the LED project which shone with the light of a thousand burning suns, but didn’t get a picture of that.

And hey, if anyone has a spare bipolar stepper motor (4 wires), post on the list! For everyone else, see you at the next Meetup or at the next Arduino night.

Open House January 22

We had a great turnout with still more new faces. Big shout out, we also passed the 100 member mark on our Meetup Group. Great projects continue to kick off! Thanks to Chris and Kenny and all the other new folks who came out. We saw some hardkernel ARM Odroid boards. That was pretty cool, driving LCD, ethernet, bluetooth, you name it. The ARM revolution continues (and accelerates).
