A look at recent events and member projects
Introducing the new logo for Solid State Depot! With Denver Maker Faire coming this weekend, we decided that it was time to roll out our new logo. Our first use of it was etching a new LED sign for our door, using our laser cutter.
New stickers and new business cards.
The first sticker went to join the world’s largest sticker ball over at StickerGiant.
Mark your calendars! Denver’s Maker Faire will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 14-15, at the DenverMart on 58th Avenue near I-25. Maker Faires are events where creative and curious people gather to share what they are working on and learn from each other.
A few of the activities going on this year at the Faire are SparkFun’s AVC and Combat Bot competition, Build-Your-Own Drone workshop, and a Boulder U-Fix-It Clinic hands-on lamp repair workshop.
SSD will have a table at the event and is looking for projects to display and people to help set-up, clean-up and man the booth during the event. If you would like to volunteer for a shift and show off a project at our table (volunteers for 4-hour shifts get free admission), sign up here and/or reach out to Jennifer or Andrew at one of our open houses.

This blog post contains images from the balloon taken by two of the three Raspberry Pi Zero cameras on-board. Unfortunately the third suffered catastrophic data loss (probably upon landing) and everything on its SD-card was lost. One of the Pi cameras faced outward from the side of the payload and the other at about a 30° angle off of straight down.
